Totally agree, Tim & Crystal are great to work with! We first purchased a 370 Sport Kayak as a test, it easily fit into a bin and we can take it on a plane when we fly. We were so impressed with the 370 we got "Captain Tim's" version of the 435ps Paddleski. I have since added the fishing seat and have no problem getting them to the water with the EZ Cart. Now we rarely travel with the "hard" kayaks and are looking to pick up a 380x Explorer for some class IV water.

You get a Gobe rack, with quick release connections.

Rack can hold Thule, Yakima, etc...racks. Rack tilts back to enable access to soft top.

Definition of Class IV Rapid:Intense, powerful but predictable rapids requiring precise boat handling in turbulent water. Depending on the character of the river, it may feature large, unavoidable waves and holes or constricted passages demanding fast maneuvers under pressure. A fast, reliable eddy turn may be needed to initiate maneuvers, scout rapids, or rest. Rapids may require “must make” moves above dangerous hazards. Scouting may be necessary the first time down. Risk of injury to swimmers is moderate to high, and water conditions may make self-rescue difficult. Group assistance for rescue is often essential but requires practiced skills. For kayakers, a strong roll is highly recommended. Rapids that are at the lower or upper end of this difficulty range are designated Class IV- or Class IV+ respectively.

I regularly run Class IV and sometimes Class V and I certainly wouldn't do it in anything that was not rated for Class V water. Seven runs through the Grand Canyon and I have never seen an inflatable that wasn't made by one of the major whitewater raft manufacturers. Probably for good reason.

Talking

Ok spent a lot time researching these kayaks, first choice was the Saturn 420, has a inflatable drop stitch floor making stiff enough to stand on in the water.

But the company is train wreck, stay away claims to have shipping twice but no tracking numbers, then they have no stock it shipped from another state.
good price $689 shipped.
Order refunded after waiting a week
then I found Airkayaks.com, these folks know all of them first hand and plenty of Utubes explaining & testing

I liked this one at $899 more than I wanted to spend but it came with everything free shipping

dealt the owner Holly, she's great, received it today, big question will it fit in a Miata, (a 15' boat)

I think it does!!!

Tomorrow maiden voyage in Glacier Park

Seaeagle Customer Service

I have owned a Seaeagle 465 Fastrack for just over 5 years. They have a 3 year warranty so i was 2 years past it when i experienced a seam leak. I called Seaeagle to find out my options and was told to email them a picture of the failure. A few days later they called me to say a new hull will be sent out. I was instructed to cut out a section of the hull of the serial # and the failure, email them the picture then put it out to trash. This was so no one would attempt to repair and use. I got my new hull yesterday and the whole process took just less than 2 weeks.

At the price point of the better inflatables there are many good choices. Customer service after the sale is what makes great companies.

"jimbo2013".....A few years ago we decided to get a kayak for camping. Carrying full size was not something we wanted to do. We eventually bought the Hobie Mirage. https://www.hobie.com/kayaks/mirage-i14t/

The Hobie Mirage is a two person kayak with the Mirage pedal system. There is a set of bicycle pedals in both positions that operate to large flappers that looking like they're clapping under the boat. When inflated, you can walk down the center of the boat. It also has a large sealed storage compartment up front and bungees on the back for something like a small ice chest.

This kayak really moves when using the pedals and is steered by a hand operated rudder. You can also paddle the kayak like any other model.

The down side.....it comes in a bag that is about 48" x 48" x 15" and weighs about 75 pounds. We use an electric pump to inflate.
