...inflate-o-matic?!...

Last summer I met some guys who looked like they drove all night, got some ZZZ's in the car, and were about to head out at 0800...I had been out since 0400, danced with some fish and caught the end of the incoming to call it a morning and ride back up the channel where it all began. They had their hands full bucking the current...their determination, while a bit wet, was inspiring...
They were using the typically low riding Sterns inflatables and admitted that what they lacked in speed, they made up for in convenience and stealth, and that the design was not well suited for long paddling but for access to estuaries, channels, and the like.
Throw it in the trunk and it's there waiting for when opportunity knocks!
