Hello everybody!
I'm Jacopo, from Italy, I live in Tuscany
My only experiences with kayak were with inflatables, the first was a Sevylor Tahiti, a really cheap one, then i switched to a Gumotex (Innova) Solar.
I really like the portability of inflatables and their easy and fast assembly.
On the other side they can't handle winds, last summer in Sardinia i had to spend a lot of time fighting against winds...
I'm trying to build a sonnet 16 from Tom Yost design

See you soon

Alla fine no - l'avevo cominciato poi abandonato quando Pakboats hanno messo in vendita il loro Quest 135 in 2013 ☺
