Why is it that I don't see more people investing in/discussing inflatable kayaks and what not. I guess since you can't stand in most of them. I just got a sevylor colorado. Haven't tried it out yet, i would assume that one must be very careful when putting in and getting out of the water (plan on wading up to my waste to put in) so as not to puncture the hull. I am a little weary. I thought the outer hull construction would be a little beefier, but it looks as if a pointed stick could easily puncture the front of the vessel. Anyway, I'm gonna put in at the scioto and see how she sails.
