Choices

Here's an alternative folding kayak.

The Folbot Kiawah. Its 4.04m long. Should be more than enough... Or should I get the 5m version?


Costing much lesser at USD$1695

The drawback would be the oversized cockpit.

I'd definitely go with the Cooper, as opposed to the Kiawah. But that's my typical American thinking: More is better; Bigger is better. On the other hand, sometimes those're true.

Nice thing about a folding kayak is once you've bought it, you never have to pay for it again, and you can store it in a small space - doesn't require a barn, although barns are good to have...

Moses Santiago, on both foldingkayaks.org and folbotforum.com has been paddling a Kiawah around Amsterdam for about a year, now. He'd probably be good source of information on the boat.

Yup, I've seen Moses's blog.
But I bought a 2nd hand Big Kahuna from a friend and will be getting it on Saturday. So, I guess its neither!

Yes, folding kayaks have the advantage especially since I live in a 3rd floor apartment with no elevators.
