    Seriously our new condo has a kayak landing strip. We're thinking about a tandem kayak. Were pretty good with those. Any recommendations?


    The only tandem kayak I've ever tried was a crappy plastic rental thing that we couldn't have capsized if we'd tried, so someone else will have to answer that one.

    We just got this. Although not quite as fast as other tandems we've used it's pretty good. It tracks almost like a standard kayak because the prow and stern are aluminum. Other inflatables handle like an inflatable raft. We have to get used to the width, a little wider because of being inflatable thing so it's a bit like having pillows under your arms, at least for me because I'm short.

    Over all though we love it. Takes 10 minutes to inflate, we don't need a kayak rack or to pay for a storage berth at our condo. Yes, a traditional kayak would be faster. But then we could not just toss the bag, life vests, dry bag and paddles in the car and take off.

    Oh my gosh Trek420, I have that model too, in orange. I am ashamed to admit I haven't taken it into any open waters yet. Glad you are liking it so much. Did you get the Backbone for it, or did you find it not to be necessary?

    I received an email from this forum that there was a response to my post in the thread. It has been a long time since I wrote that! Since then, I have used this convertible kayak with and without the backbone. Does help with heavier loads! Used it solo and with a second person. I did have to get a longer paddles though, for the reason you mentioned, the wider walls. It has been fun, I just wish I had the nerve to get the Rapid Sail accessory.

    More toys indeed!

    We did not get the backbone because that seemed more for those wanting to use the kayak on open water and or longer trips. So far we’ve just been puttering around on the local river.
