The Point 65N Modular Sit-On-Top is an excellent boat for one person and can be converted to a tandem by adding a center section. The three pieces snap together very easily if the pressures are equalized in each unit. There is a pressure relief plug on each unit. When transporting, no part weighs over 34# and can be easily fitted into a SUV or a station wagon. It is made from durable, UV-resistant polyethylene. We added padded seats for longer trips. This kayak slips through the water easily and it is possible to paddle into a current, unlike a canoe. I had to contact the manufacturer because the handle came loose from the stern but they sent me an updated handle with two attachment screws from Sweden at no charge and this fixed my problem. I highly recommend this product for exploring and for portability.
