We really like our 8′ inflatable dinghy and 2hp Honda outboard, but when Costco started giving these kid’s kayaks away for $80 each we took a look.

We’re right at the rated weight limit, and they’re not rated for much, but the kayaks are only 6.5′ long and under 25#.

Well, it turns out they’re great. They’re probably too unstable for fishing or long voyages, but they’re a great way to get to shore or do a little exploring in an anchorage.


Clearly, though, we’re right at the weight limit.


The decks are awash.


It occurs to me that the “Wet-Butt” appellation may be considered vulgar. Please feel free to substitute “Semi-Submersible.”
