The road from Sevylor's founding in 1948 to its current role as the dominant supplier of a wide range of inflatables--such as kayaks, boats, and towables--is a long one, with plenty of original inventions and innovations along the way. Established in a city suburb of Vitry, France, by electronics engineer Berco Grimbert, Sevylor originally built electrical accessories, with a sideline business dedicated to using its high-frequency welding machines to manufacture PVC consumer goods. The first inflatable to receive rave notice was a small bathtub called the Dou Dou. Perfect for postwar France, the inflatable tub was portable, convenient, practical, easy to clean, durable, and, best of all, affordable.
After moving to the picturesque Alsatian village of Buhl, the company expanded into developing valves, pumps, boats, inflatable pools, and a variety of water toys. In the ensuing years, Sevylor first developed a PVC that had "memory"--meaning it could return to its original shape regardless of temperature--and then made history by releasing an inflatable pool mattress with a headrest and circular pockets. In 1986, the company invented the Ski Bob, a real turning point in the evolution of the towables business. Today, Sevylor's innovative designs include tenders, hunting and fishing boats, specialty boats and kayaks, towables, snow tubes, air beds, pool floats, river tubes, swim and sport rings, and more.

On other sites I've seen complaints about the internal tubes being out of place and causing the boat to sit unevenly in the water. This is relatively easy to fix by finessing the tubes as you inflate the boat. If it still has issues, you can open the zipper ports where the internal tubes are lashed to the boats exterior and make some small adjustments although the manufacturer doesn't recommend doing this. Also, the instructions are not clear about the fact that the black strip of plastic included with the boat needs to be inserted into two pockets in the front to lift the deck off of the seating area. A search for the previous K1 version of this boats instructions also can show you what this means. The top deck and spray skirt are not completely water proof but I intend to improve that with an application of water proofing spray like the kind you would use for camping equipment. Finally, some people complained that it takes a long time to dry out. Well, if you leave it folded up or deflated, sure it will take forever to dry. I re-inflate the boat when I get home from trips an leave it leaning against the wall in my garage. This allows it to dry and less than a day.
For the price this is a great boat. I have taken it out in the bay several times with out issue. It seems to be very sturdy. The cargo space is perfect and even fits a large hand pump, the carry case since I have a bit of a hike to the waterfront, and the skirt just in case.
My only issue with this kayak is the lack of instructions. The first time I inflated it, it was lopsided. I had to deflate, unzip various parts, push, pull, inflate, re-deflate, adjust some more... really had no idea what I was doing. It took me at least 30 minutes to get it to sit right.
Then there was a random plastic piece. I had no idea what that was for. I eventually found a YT video that explained it: [...]
Re-inflate when you get home so that all the nooks and crannies can dry.
Take the cardboard picture out of the carry case before you use it, once it gets wet it just crumbles and makes the case look like trash.
You will need a pump that has different tips - there are two different size valves on this boat. I got this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000J2Q0IA/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00
