Hi,
I travel a lot with folding and inflatable kayaks. I have a K2 and also a Java. Both from Feathercraft. I use the Java for spearfishing. My last trip was to Panama, spearfishing tunas by kayak. It involved quite a lot of kayaking, as the tunas are far and fast. Averaging maybe 15 miles a day (up to 25) for about 4 or 5 quick 30 seconds dives! It is really more kayaking than diving.

Earlier in this year I went to the Bahamas with the K2 and we are going to Norway in a month (with my wife).

Welcome Kayakspearo,

Great to hear about other adventurers, sounds like you are putting your kayaks to great use. Pics are always welcome!

There is a lot of relevant discussion about the demise/decline of the industry that keeps us in our boats. You and several others represent, imo, the core of the market for folders. I am certainly grateful for the kayaks I have, and it sounds like you are too.

Best,
g

Looks like great fun but, as Roy Sheider said..."we're gonna need a bigger boat!"

Nice tuna, btw. Sushi!

Actualy, I'm looking for a smaller (or at least narrower) boat. I need speed to chase those tunas! If Feathercraft was still making the Jet Stream, I'd buy one today. Now those kayaks are almost impossible to find... :(
