Interesting. Looks more versatile than the sit-on-top plastic kayaks as long as you have the room to stow it. If I were going to that kind of design, in the interest of saving space, I'd probably consider something like:

It's too bad they only show it in calm weather. I would like to see it in a little bit of waves. not to be negative also very little room for water jugs and stuff like that. Went back to the site and I see the guy paddling into pretty choppy water that looks good.

On a river but I think it might show a bit how stable it is. They make them up to 16 feet. Also gear capacity.

Duct taping the lower unit back together was classic!

LOL, right? Have you used that gorilla glue duct tape? that stuff is no joke. I keep a roll on the boat for emergency's. I used it once to butterfly tape a nasty cut that ended up needing a lot of stitches. It only reopened when I ripped the tape off.

Re: This kayaky looking thing interests me

Always interesting to see new products. Thanks for sharing.

For me personally, that plastic thing looks like it would be hard to get up on deck and secure. If I have good davits, then I'd prefer a rigid inflatable with outboard. If not, an inflatable kayak would be much easier to launch, store, paddle and probably handle bigger seas.
