I like perceptions and watch craigslist for one... I'm torn... I see myself using the kayak for provisioning, hitting the beach to fish, or just paddling around. Then I see my neighbors kayak full of skanky water. Your other post about where to stow was helpful. Thanks for making my decision more difficult again.

Re: Kayak - Ins' and Outs

I am looking at the Aire lynx/Superlynx inflatable kayaks. My question is, does the self bailing system result in a wet floor when you are on calm water? And is this true of all the self bailing inflatables? I read that they let water in if you are not moving.

Re: Kayak - Ins' and Outs

I often end up with a bit of damp butt. Just goes with the territory. I ended up buying a hard sit-in 8 ft Sundolphin Aruba. It was cheap, durable, and fun. Big factor was the short length fits nicely on my foredeck. It doesn't track great, but I'm not using it for serious kayaking.
