Great review, considering getting one of these to explore my local canal from a different perspective, and occasionally the sea when it's calm too. Refreshing to watch a review by somebody without a try-hard persona.

I just purchased a pair of these and can't wait to use them. Had to inflate one in my living room, but mine lacked instructions. Your video was immensely more informative than the drivel I found on the Intex website. It will be fun to get them on the water as I live in the State of Minnesota (Land of 10,000 lakes!) Thank you.

It looks like there is a lot of swaying in the front when paddling compared to a rigid kayak, do you think so?

no music...thanks! here in Calif. great review...you try not to be a celebrity...hard to find people comfortable in their own skin. what did you patch with if it held so long? also, did you think of spraying or sealing the seams to reinforce (waterproof) before hitting the water? I saw someone do this with a $20 tent and it withstood harsh rains.

+mparsapo yes very easy put small hole drill near corner edge then attach fishing line to grab ropes, that way can't lose it in water.
mparsapo
mparsapo - 4 years ago
+TheSoulKeeper7. Fantastic! I just ordered one--will it,be obvious once it arrives where to drill the hole & attach line? Does this keep it in tight place or merely keep it from being lost once detached?

TheSoulKeeper7 - 4 years ago
I found drilling a small hole then attaching some fishing line stops it being lost.

would the depth of the leg space be enough for some one at about 6ft (with or without the seat) what kind of leg space would you have for your hight (with or without the seat) (how tall are you?)


what glue did you use for the repair and the patch?

As the son of a career US Navy man, when my dad retired when I was 8 or 9, it was not long before my dad purchased his own personal mini ship, a 17 foot I believe Old Town canoe. It was fun.... However when he added a one man fiberglass kayak to his personal fleet, I remember thinking the kayak was a sports car n the canoe just a station wagon....

An excellent Dan Brown Product Review.   I am amazed at how steady the camera was filming, as it obviously was mounted on the Kayak.  I too think the Kayak needs a name, and like the one EZ proposed.

Hello Dan, good review of the intex. it is a shame you have a bad back, I think it would be easy to add a floorboard to your kayak and modify it for sailing.
I have been impressed with the intex. I recently bought their cheapest model I could actually fit into, which is the intex 200 I bought for only $13 USD.!!!
 I added a floorboard and trolling motor and battery to it and used it like a floating reclining chair, it actually works pretty good. here is a video of it if you like.
http://youtu.be/5UQ4rYmmqhM

I have also posted videos of making the inflatable sailboat. I am thinking if you add a floorboard maybe you can lay down in it and not hurt your back as much and still make it sail.
 Thanks for making and sharing.

Very impressed that "it" - "she" will still carry you with the bottom part deflated.
If you are going to be long term partners, surely a name for the craft would be appropriate?
May I start off with the glaringly obvious - "Kaya"?
