Fold­ing Kayak

Soundings - - Equipment - Fold­ing­

The 21-pound But­ter­fly K-PAK skin-on-frame kayak folds and stows in a back­pack. The as­sem­bled boat has an LOA of 9 feet, 3 inches and a beam of 30 inches. The alu­minum frame re­mains within the boat when folded and pops open in a few sec­onds, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany. The lower portion of the frame is at­tached to four in­de­pen­dent in­flat­able tubes that run the length of the boat and fill si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the pro­vided pump, press­ing the frame to the ure­thane skin. The welded seams are water­proof, and the boat comes with an in­flat­able seat. $875. Fold­ing Boat Co., Holly Springs, North Car­olina, (919) 670-6890.
