OK, Always wanted to try a porta-bote and now I have one. Seems kinda old but in "OK" shape except the transom plywood is delaminating. Doesn't porta-bote use marine ply?
So how did you like the inflatable kayak? I have a large Sea Eagle 370 that I have considered using for a tender but haven't actually tried.
