Anyone ever considered the inflatable kayak option. Such as nifty boats...

I looked at them online. Most of those types of Kaboat have a flat floor. I got an Elling K430SL with a vee keel and HP floor.

I like these types of boat. Very good power to package weight (I get 16mph from 20kg 5hp 1 up), narrow so roll up a breeze, all easily handled by a solo person.

Option for what? I bought a really basic inflatable kayak to mess about on with the boy and its held up well after a couple of years mild use. For the rib though I have an ancient (2!) person beach toy style dinghy thing which folds up much smaller and is much lighter, fits under a jockey seat, but makes for a quick and easy inflate and row ashore if needed.

Possible tender of I get floating mooring, , something for teens to learn some skills on and for little days out. As an alternative to a small sib I suppose
