Only having been in a kayak a couple of times, and only on a calm lake or saltwater cove, I'd like to know how people feel about inflatable kayaks. I've tried one in a calm cove and liked it, and would have no desire to take it into open waters. But, if I wanted to take it somewhere where the water isn't calm, and maybe even on the Kenai River or Eagle River, would an inflatable kayak be ok for that? I have in mind a medium/good quality kayak and not something that would hit a stick and pop. Maybe something like the Advanced Frame Kayak manufactured by Advanced Elements http://www.advancedelements.com/Kayaks.html
Non-inflatable kayaks are not an option at this time because the space on my boat is limited.
So the first thing is to get feedback on inflatable kayaks, and the second thing will be get feedback on whether or not taking an inflatable kayak to the Kenai or Eagle River is something someone with very little experience should consider. Thanks.
