This is an inflatable kayak, and those who review it in comparison to a solid hull craft are doing it a disservice. You are not going to go white water kayaking with this and you're not going to be going on week long jaunts with tons of gear either, it is meant to be recreational in purpose, nothing more. With that in mind for the price you cannot go wrong. Also comparing this to the 4-600 dollar models is not fair either, it is not meant to be in that class.
Drill a hole in the Skeg and tie a line to it and then to the stern of the kayak to prevent losing it. It WILL come out as others have said.
Do not overinflate the seats, they don't need to be rock hard.
Get some longer oars if you can afford it. Better quality wouldn't hurt either. But if you can't the stock one will work in a pinch.
1st time you use it make sure you reach inside and press the drain plug in the stern in FIRMLY. it will come out and your back side will get soggy.
Get a better bag to store it in. I use a large Coleman duffle bag I had laying around. The bag they give you is crap and will tear out. Plus it will not hold the oars anyway.
Other than that just enjoy it. it is nice way to waste and afternoon.
Step 1: Drill a hole in the skeg near the back (i used a plastic form indent from the factory as my enterance point.
Step 2: Get a lot of dental floss, or high gauge fishing line. Take the floss/line and fold it 3/4 times for extra strength and loop it through the hole in your skeg. Knot the one end several times to the skeg. Then for extra strength, coat the knots with super glue.
Step 3: Tie the other end of the floss/line to somewhere on the kayak. Leave some slack as you dont want this putting tension on anything.
Step 4: never lose your skeg again. If it falls of, it will dangle on the string you made until you realize it's off. It is going to take a TON of tension to snap this safety line. At that point you probably have more problems then a lost skeg.
Step 5: Profit!!
Pictures included :)
I threw duct tape over the hole I made just for asthetics
Ease of use and outstanding control is what makes this kayak worth a look. Price is another. For just over $100, we own a collapsible / portable kayak part of the Intex line that is little work and a lot of fun. My 11-year-old son, who sat in the front of the boat, taking in the water and shore sights, barely paddled. Despite its 10' length, buoyant design and only one paddler, I had trouble neither propelling nor controlling this boat.
We were loaded in, too, for a day trip with supplies including the hand pump, bilge pump,extra paddle (although unnecessary since this boat is so easy to handle with one paddler), snacks, water, mats,ropes,stakes,binoculars, camera and other misc gear like Wet Ones. We stashed half under the front skirt, and half behind my seat in the back. The craft was balanced despite my son's 90 pounds in the front and my 145 pounds - and gear - riding in the back. Pictures show even displacement. The craft is surprisingly stable. I never felt in tipping danger even when we rode into the wake of passing jet skis and motor boats.
This kayak is easy, comfortable, powerful, attractive, and affordable. What's not to like? It's a beautiful piece of equipment that will give you many happy water adventures.
