I posted our hard shells earlier. Here is one of our two PakBoat Puffin 12'. These are about suitcase sized when packed and weigh around 18 lbs. We take these in our motorhome. Most of the time we don't put the decks on as you can see my wife paddling below. These are NOT your typical cheap inflatable Wallymart type device. These have been used all around the world and can be carry on luggage on planes. Here's a link to the manufacture's site. News from Pakboats
Here are a few pics.
And finally on the water without the deck.

Going through this thread gives those of us with only cheapy inflatable kayaks serious envy guys Keep it up.

Here's a kayak question...would it be a horrible idea to jump right into a whitewater boat? I have next to no interest in sea kayaking, my plan would be to borrow my Dad's Necky Rip 12 to get comfortable paddling and then get myself something like this:
This seems to be the kayak equivalent of an all mountain bike. So, am I crazy?
