Inflatable Kayaks: Not “pool toys” anymore …
During the 9 years that we have been in the inflatable kayak / inflatable boat business we have seen many changes. Inflatable kayaks used to be considered “pool toys”, not very tough and ready to spring a leak at any time. Various manufacturers, like Sea Eagle and Innova, our main brands, have successfully changed that perception by making kayaks that blow the “pool toys” out of the water (pun intended).
New and Better Materials …
Advancements in materials, such as the rubberized Nitrylon used by Innova and the 1000 denier PVC weaved material used by Sea Eagle make newer inflatable kayaks and boats extremely hard to puncture. We’ve sold over 2,000 inflatable watercraft and customers who have reported punctures to us number less that 1%.
Much Improved Tracking …
Another problem with older inflatable kayaks was that they didn’t track as well as hard shell kayaks. Tracking is the term used for how well a kayak holds it’s path in the water. Since inflatable kayaks ride higher in the water, they tend to be affected by the wind and since not as much of their hull is down below the surface of the water, they may drift off the path more than a fiberglass, hard shell kayak. That’s still true, but the firmness achieved by better materials being able to hold higher pressure air combined with sleeker designs and, in the case of Sea Eagle’s Explorer, Fast Track and RazorLite kayaks, the hard drop stitch floor have created inflatable kayaks that can now be mentioned in the same breath as many hard shell kayaks when talking about “tracking“. The gap has narrowed considerably.
