Re: Recommendations for inflatable kayak as tender
Just wanted to put in a good word for the advanced elements kayaks. We have one of the advanced frame two person, it's been our only tender for about a year and a half now. The girlfriend, myself, and our 50lb dog all fit in fine, it's super stable and tough. Getting in and out of it from the boat took a little bit of practice, especially for the dog, but we've never ended up in the water. Done everything from hauling water, groceries, bikes, to battling wind waves to get back out to the boat. You do have to try to keep them clean though, we had some sand work it's way between the inflation tubes and the bottom, eventually wore a hole in the bottom. Easily patched though.
