Rather than tying up the good primer that String wrote up , thought I would start a new thread.
Transporting the kayak is our basic issue. We have a van that we can gat a 10’ -11’ inside: have physical issues that limit the ability to lift arms over head and I’m not certain I want to spend (at this time) an extra 1500 - 3000(or more) for a roof rack system or a trailer for something that health issues present and future might render unused.
We will be lilly paddlers, maybe 1 time per week from whenever the ice leaves ( early May) until mid October
Both males medium to medium small in size 5/8 @ 140-145 and 5/10 @155-160
Which would you recommend
- 10-11 ft hard shell rec boat
- whatever size inflatable 12-16 ft
- Whatever size folding 12-16
I know the rec boat and inflatables are each within the 750-1250 and the folding maybe a tad more- but basically all 3 are in a similar price point. Each probably has its good and bad points, whether it is ease/difficulty of set-up and the ease/difficulty of use.
