I like it therefore after buying one for a month, I go to store again and buy another one. It is relatively easy and fast for inflating and packing. The best of it I could explore the many beaches and islands in Hong Kong with the kayak.
1. Elastic string for keeping things in the front. You have it at the back, why don't you do same for the front. Besides, it would be easier to get thing in the front then at the back.
2. More handle or gripping belt/string on the two sides. There is only one handle on each side of the kayak. With extra handle or gripping belt/string, they provide additional safety and could provide points for tying up things to be put on the side, eg. an extra paddle just in case of accident.
1. How do I get the water out of the kayak while I am paddling in the water? For each movement of the paddle in and out of the water, the paddle also bring some water into the centre hallow part of the kayak. More and more water accumulate inside the kayak making it heavier and heavier. It slow down the kayak and burn my energy. There is also a safety reason too as I could be too tried to go back to shore due to the heavy kayak. How could I solve this problem?

Purchased this kayak late last year and has only been used once, when I’ve taken out the bladders to clean the zip on the canvas cover is broken meaning I cannot zip the bladders back in and when I have inflated and left for 24 hours to clean and allow to dry it’s lost a significant amount of air. Not happy at all for the price of this. Wished I’d of saved myself the hassle and not purchased at all
We bought this for use in Thailand and have had used it over the last three trips for recreation and fishing. Very stable in the sea and holds its course well. No problems whatsoever and all this in temperatures of 80 -95 deg. F
To set the scene - I am 68yo, 94kg and its been 50 years since last using a sea canoe. She assembles easily and is confortable to carry to the water. I use her in the Thames Estuary, the last time in force 3-4 wind with a 2 foot chop. No problem with tracking and the waves are easy to deal with. Quite stable compared to the fibreglass kayaks. Still practicing getting into her elegantly! If you don't want to spend tons of money, this is a good choice. The seat could do with upgrading as the back is flimsy. Not too much of a problem as you lean forward to paddle anyway.
Recommendation - choose a paddle with a large blade area, not the smaller, skinny bladed ones. You want to be able to get good power into the blade in a chop
Next - I'm going to replace the 3 standard skegs with larger area ones. I'm looking for a replacement seat (although the standard one is quite adequate). Just treated myself to a full body wetsuit (£30), now to go out and practice capsize drill.
