My first kayaks were Stearns inflatables because they would stow on my sailboat. I still have them. They are in great shape (some sun fade) and are perfect for guests and trips.
My first sit on top kayak was a harbor rescue after a storm. After a few weeks of advertising, I adopted it permanently & replaced all the straps & fittings. I still have it! It's an Ocean Frenzy.
I'm looking to add another single sit on top and focus on length, weight, capacity, & value.
