I had a quick search and can't believe this hasn't already been talked about here, but I didn't get any results ...
Does anyone have experience with the clear kayak
or canoe products? They seem "neat", but rather expensive and the Amazon and other reviews
are very much all over the charts
I think it's strange they don't use typical hull
shape designs, and rely on frames and flotation inserts. I assume this is because the clear materials being used are likely heavier and weaker than what's being used by other manufacturers.
The "Crystal Kayak" is currently on sale
, presumably because they're clearing stock to go out of business or introduce a new model? But they can be had in singles for a thousand dollars off
, which is still considerably more than a traditional kayak
of good quality. They can be bought in bulk for even bigger discounts.
The idea of a clear boat
is compelling to me as we're currently in the Abacos and I think it could be fun, and better than a glass bottom bucket from the dinghy
(which I also don't have ...).
Is there anyone here with experience?
