Point65 has figured out the best way to save money when it comes to paddling—a kayak that functions both as a single-person and as a two-person boat.
Sounds too good to be true, but you can convert the kayak in seconds. Plus, its Snap-Tap design makes it easy to take apart and stuff in your trunk. Simply line up the sections, connect and tighten the straps, and attach the rudder.
The touring kayak comes with all the essentials, too—comfortable cockpit outfitting, an enclosed deck, carrying handles, watertight oval hatches for gear, a paddle-park, a fish-o-meter, and of course, cup holders.
Should you worry about leaking? Point65 doesn’t seem to think so.
