Our next stop is on Lake Corpus Christi and we'll be there for a month, so I'm excited take it out for a paddle. I got a two seater in case Monello wants to come with me.
 
I've had zero luck with the longevity of inflatables maintaining the ability to hold air and not leak... (beds, chairs, pools, etc.) so please be sure to wear your life jacket!

It was under $100 and got great reviews, so I should get my money's worth. I've been shopping hard kayaks for a couple of years but can't justify spending $700+ to drag that thing all over the US and only use it sporadically. Our RV park in Mathis is right on Lake CC and then we head to SPI where we'll be on the lagoon for three months. If it dies after SPI I'll still have gotten more than $100 use out of it.

Do get a decent life vest, and a whistle. Please. For flatwater, I would trust Intex, if they can craft a pool that holds 5,000 gallons of water in, they can keep that water out. I've had Intex above grounds for 10 or more years and never had one leak.

Dammit.... I paid Monello a lot of money to record everything.

Maiden voyage today - I love it! This is supposedly a two-person kayak but I can't see how there would be enough room for two people. Or maybe it's just me who likes to bring a lot of gear and sprawl out.

Anyway, super stable and felt secure. I thought it would be tippy or squishy, but nope. The inflatable seat cushioned me right in the lumbar so I didn't get a back ache like I usually do.
