This is a new and revolutionary design, crossover between an inflatable kayak and an inflatable boat, an inflatable kayak with a plywood transom - KaBoat! To use it as a regular kayak, just paddle it anywhere you want, such as on the: ocean, bay, river or lake. All new KaBoats now come with rowing oars!
If you get tired, just use an electric or gas engine installed on the marine grade plywood transom. You can use it as an inflatable boat with an outboard engine.
If the battery charge or gas runs low, then use it as a kayak to paddle to your destination. The KaBoat is extremely portable and will fit in a medium size bag. Now you can go on vacation and take your small KaBoat with you, (along with an optional small electric or gas engine). The main benefit is that if you get tired of paddling, then you can use the engine to get back ashore.
The KaBoat's exceptionally stable design allows you to stand, fly fish or even get into those narrow spots where other boats can't go to get the best fishing.

The Kaboats are great for what they are. You can stand up paddle them as well as you can many Sups that are designed for fishing. You can row it pretty well but the short oars will have you wanting to upgrade after a few miles. It is great with an outboard and we used an 8 HP, but I'd recommend nothing over 4 hp for this boat. It is very light and easy to inflate and deflate and put in a pick up or hatch back. A great boat for swimming, fishing and a good dingy if the weight is very important. For rowing I'd want something longer and narrower with better oars. For motoring I'd want something wider. For an everything light dingy it is wonderful.
