I'm looking at buying a couple of kayaks and have read and read about them, but I would like some feedback from someone who owns one. All we need is something for lakes and slow moving rivers.

From Christine....

I have a modular kayak...can transport in my car and then it snaps together easily. You can also make it solo or tandem depending on which parts you buy and comes in an array of colors. It is a little more pricey than ones you can pick up at Academy or wherever, but the ease was worth it for me. You are welcome to take a look at it and/or try it out if you want to see what it is like. -christine

I like the versatility of the modular kayaks with the option to add a second seat. How stable is yours Christine? I have visions of overturning and then not being able to get back on. Confused

Which model do you have? Is it one on the linked site? (I assume it is, but you what know what assume does Wink )

From Christine....I have the tequila model and have never tipped, but have only done lakes. I have a friend who has the same model and has gone on rivers and ocean water without issue. There is a technique for getting back in, though I haven't tried it yet.
