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
For the boating itself, this craft is ok. It doesn't seem as smooth or can go as fast as a hard plastic boat. But that's fine considering it's $100-200 less. I even took it through some mild rapids (still choppy enough to splash me good) and it held up fine.
The fin/skeg works fine and is easy to install but requires decent hand strength to remove (a good thing). It basically clicks in place and you have to push a tab down to remove it. I drilled a hole and put a fishing line through it in case the skeg falls off as suggested by others, but this is unnecessary. I even started heading away from shore once and the skeg, and only the skeg, hit an underwater boulder. I was going about 3mph when it hit and came to a dead stop, all 200+ lbs of the boat and people. The skeg edge was a little scratched but in place at the end. Maybe Intex updated the skeg after it 1st came out. I'm going to remove the fishing line before the next trip because it is unnecessary and gets seaweed,etc caught in it creating more drag.
If you were to give me the choice (price not an issue) b/w a hard plastic boat and this, I'd pick the hard boat. That said, I'm very happy with this very inexpensive and easy to transport kayak.
