I just purchased 2 of these Equinox kayaks (the yellow one) from Costco to put on top of my boat for use in PWS, and to use while road camping. Spoiled one had one when I rafted up next to him last year, and I thought "if its good enough for him, its good enough for me" I thought that the kids would like them, and it would make quick work taking the dog to shore. They are priced at $350. It comes with an oar also. The reviews seem to be good, but if anyone has something to share, that would be great. They still have them in stock, but if you are interested, I would move quickly.
