You are certainly right about your kayak with the outriggers. The problem I have with it, is weight, I am old and have problems putting one on my blazer, also the cockpits are small and restrictive. I believe with an inflatable, one has more stability, room, and is light. The one I am interested in weighs 17 pounds. Over the last few years I have seen kayaks in trouble, including myself. I have seen fishermen in inflatables having a time landing one fish after another just beyond the surf line. While I cast from shore as the surf was to large for my kayak. I am surprised that your thoughts were the only ones raised on the board. Thanks
