Re: Inflatable kayak as a small boat tender

I use an Innova Helios 2, and as far as inflatables go, it's really sturdy. It tracks pretty well if you remember to attach the fin underneath and is relatively stable. I take my dog back and forth to shore in it.

I went with the Innova vs some of the other models because I don't like the fabric bag protecting less durable innards and if I did spring a leak I could easily find and patch it rather than having to dig around inside a fabric bag.

The only drawback using this vs a dinghy is space...the max I can fit is two people and one dog (person in front holding the dog) with very little extra room for cargo.
