Pelican Kayaks Pelican International is going into their 40th year as a leader in affordable, high-quality water craft products. They now offer hundreds of boats-from canoes, pedal boats and fishing boats to durable and affordable kayaks. The company has been a leader in exclusive technologies that have set benchmarked standards of excellence for impact resistance, ability for their products to regain their shapes after violent impacts, and their UV-protected exteriors. Targeting the recreational user, Pelican kayaks are an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast looking for a balance between quality and affordability.
Wooden kayaks are the original and hand-made quality model. A smooth, warm wood kayak can be a beautiful thing. The prices on wood boats vary considerably. They are easy to repair but do require lots of routine maintenance like an ordinary boat would. Need to be stored properly and the quality can vary as well - depending on the craftsmanship. Folding kayaks offer the advantage of easy portability and storage. A folding kayak is a collapsible - made of fabric stretched over usually an aluminum frame - but that can vary. Their price is on the expensive side when comparing kayak prices, but they tend to last longer than a typical hard-shell and their resale price usually remains reasonable (depends on the care it received over the years).
Need to consider - Storability, Portability and Weight Its a known fact that kayaks are going to be out of the water more than in the water, and so you will need to think about how to store your kayak, transport it, and how you are going to get it in and out of the water. If this is another big concern, then a portable and/or good-quality inflatable kayak would be the perfect option. Another option would be to purchase the lightest/smallest hard shell you can afford. Need to decide: one person (solo) or two person, cargo capacity and/or comfort There are one person kayaks and there are two person kayaks. They both have their advantages. A two person kayak can be perfect for couples and families. Kayakers of different skill levels and ages can pair up so that everyone can join and not be left behind. Here you can turn a kayak adventure into a fun family adventure. Two person kayaks are fast and stable, but will lack some of the maneuverability of a solo kayak. Also, purchasing risk come into play when buying double vs. solo kayak. Make sure that your kayaking partner is as enthused and motivated as you are with kayaking. Dont find out afterward that you are the only real enthusiast because a neglected 2-person kayak hanging in the back of a lonesome garage is not a pretty sight nor is constantly seeing your 2 person kayak carry bag taking up space in your car trunk.
4. They are safe with Easy Entry & Greater Stability:think stable and forgiving Inflatable kayaks have multiple air chambers for redundancy which results in greater stability than rigid kayaks/boats. With more stability, unlike rigid kayaks, inflatable kayaks are very easy to get into from the water and less tendency to capsize in difficult paddling conditions. 5. Performance: when it comes to performance, inflatable kayaks can hold their own. In the 1997 San Juan Challenge an Innova Helios II, the only inflatable entry, won its section, averaging 3 knots. In a 25 knot headwind, it was faster by half a knot than the rigid sea kayaks in the race. In calm water, it was slower by half a knot than those same boats. So it will keep up with a rigid kayak; not necessarily outperform them every time but it will compete. If you love to paddle, love to travel and looking for a convenient and affordable way to get out on the water, then an inflatable kayak is an excellent way to go. The great thing about inflatable kayaks is that there are lots of choices and no matter what your criteria, you are sure to find the portable kayak that suits your needs and skill level. Point to Remember One more thought. Inflatable boats and kayaks have been around for a while your Coast Guard and search and rescue people use them all the time. But like any boat or kayak you buy, common sense must always come into play when paddling any boat or kayak. Always wear a life vest when out on the water.
