In my experience with my 14 ft Sea Eagle inflatable, wind is definitely a factor, as Juro pointed out. It's great for hauling a mess of gear to a shoreline fishing location (like to the Washburn Island campsite for the Boneclave), but unless it's a dead calm day and/or you anchor both the bow and stern, it's no good as a fishing platform. As for underwater obstacles, I paddled it over some flooded timber on a nearby reservoir during early duck season...no damage to the yak, although my nerves were a bit shaken every time I scraped over a submerged treetop....thoughts of the Titanic kept running through my head!!!
