My hopes were, in spite of the vessel being older, but extremely well preserved, it was very comfortable and well-appointed for it's size, down below - where it really counts with a woman. Didn't work and we're in a holding pattern, on to other boats in short time.

I just ordered two of these though:

These expedition Kayaks will allow us to clear our heads on the beautiful coastal waters of our cruising grounds this summer - prior to deciding what our next boat wil be. This time - I'm all ears.
Nice. I like the look of those. We are planning on getting a couple of the high pressure inflatable kayaks. I like the idea of being able to potter up the odd creek or river that a keeler can't get into and maybe do a bit of camping at the same time. Given that inflatable dinghys are a pain to row the kayaks will also make for a bit of exercise. While I'd prefer a hard kayak storage space makes inflatable necessary.
