I have researched the inflatables, and still considering one, but was wondering if anyone had actually paddled a modular.
Iconn4: thanks for the link. I have been researching Advanced Elements and have not been hearing many good things. The Pike is an option, and NRS is a great company. Also looking at Aquaglide. Both have drop stitch hard floors.
My main problem with inflatables is not really durability. I have confidence a good inflatable can take the occasional branch, rock, ect. As long as I don't run it up on an oyster bank and then jump up and down in it I should be fine.
My main reservations with an inflatable are: (1) performance (tracking, stability), (2) high profile in the wind, and (3) difficulty in re-entry in an emergency (if I am partially incapacitated, etc.). Hence the research into a Point 65 modular.
