Hi MikeOReilly.

Well we have two Advanced elements Kayaks
They are as you say as close as you can get to a hard shell Kayak.

I have made a few things for them that gives a little more to just paddling about.

Like a sail.

But yes we intend to take them onboard when ours is completed
Storage will not be a problem....

Something to note though is you will need a bathing or boarding platform so you can get in and out of the Kayaks ...

Projects To Make for your Kayak.

Re: Inflatable kayak on board

I saw a two man ? inflatable for $25 thought it might be better than a swim ? To air it up is more work than the swim? I am not at the point that I need anything but it is nice to see what the pros are doing. Kind regards. Lou

Re: Inflatable kayak on board

I carry a pair of Advanced Systems advanced frame singles that I bought at an end of season sale a perhaps 5 years ago. They fit in small bags (roughly 15 x 30 x 18") that I store under the vee berth filler and in the stern locker. They have really transformed our whole cruising style in that we now tend to sail to portions of rivers and creeks we have not been in seeking anchorages that are close to explorable places. We spend much of our time out exploring back corners of no where. There are places that I have anchored scores of times over the years, that I now discover have a whole range of unnoticed views, creeks and backwaters that could not bee seen from the deck of Synergy anchored in deep water.

I also like the chance to get some exercise while out there.

Re: Inflatable kayak on board

I have a nice Sevylor. I've also owned the "glass bottom" inflatable as well. They're tough. I took one on a seven hour journey down the Rock Springs Run/Wekiva River. It's a spring fed river in Florida. There are some remote and overgrown areas on the run and it performed very well. I'm a fan.

Re: Inflatable kayak on board

I have an Advanced Elements single. Nice toy. Great for exploring the Hongs in Thailand. One of the best toys on board. A bit tricky getting in and out from the boarding ladder. Usually I get in from the dinghy, a bit stabler entry.
