    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.

    I don't get it. As a coastal dweller my whole life without much experience in fresh/still water. Can these people not swim and they are just tempting fate by playing in or near the water? or is there some mysterious lake current pulling them under the water? We have rip currents in the ocean but they pull you out to sea not under the water.

    The bigger question (for me) is how hard is it to get back into the bag? Most things I've ever had in the past like that....air bed is first thing that comes to mind, is nearly impossible to fold back up tight enough to store it like it was designed again. Is the boat difficult to fold back into the bag?

    The time it took a while. Don't forget first I'm in my 60's and second I'm putting two together (mine and my wife's). I had to actually read the instructions. Now it's between 10 & 15 minutes each. They are a super boat IMHO. About the only better one on the market is a Kepler. But there more $$ and a lot heavier.

    They not only fit in the bag easy but there is room for the 4 piece paddle and PFD. The boats have been in and out of the bags several times. NOT A PROBLEM. I bought these directly from the companies owner in Enfield, NH. I wanted to try one out so they took one out the bag, put it together and took me to a local lake for a demo. Since I had my Audit TT roadster then I could only bring one back to CT the other was shipped. These are NOT cheap but well designed and built boats. Alv the owner is great to talk to and has a full range of boats. Check them out. Our puffins weigh about 18 pounds and have even been in lite white water. Though Alv travels all over the world and does extreme stuff to prove the worth of his products.

    Cool. That's very good to know.

    I'm not really in the market for that any time soon, but that would have been a HUGE concern of mine for ever even considering them. Good to know my fears may not be warranted.

    As an old guy now, I prefer a canoe. Easier in/out, can carry more stuff, & almost as fast as a sea kayak.

    I did the kayak surfing thing for twenty or so years when I was younger. At sixty-two I don't need to be pounded into the Lake bottom on occasion any more.

    A lot of people drink a lot, get overheated, jump in and have a heart problem or severe cramping. Panic takes over and they drown. There is also a percentage of people on the water who can't swim.

    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:

    Liquidlogic Kayaks

    This seems to be the kayak equivalent of an all mountain bike. So, am I crazy?

    That kayak would be great. I think it's more suited to tight technical rivers "lot of obstacles" and good for fitness. I would look at something longer with a rudder for a wider variety of uses but that just my preference.
