Intex Explorer K2 Yellow 2 Person Inflatable Kayak with Aluminum Oars & Air Pump
About this deal
At double the price of the Explorer and Challenger series kayaks, the Excursion Pro kayaks offer an attractive middle ground in terms of performance, price and durability between those budget boats and higher-end inflatable kayaks made by Advanced Elements or Sea Eagle.
You can't blow more air into the valves without the pump they provide, and it's a pain to carry that in the boat with you, so when you're out in it, if it needs more air, there's nothing you can do.
Available as solo or tandem boats, Intex inflatables are best used as casual recreational kayaks. These are not heavy-duty, expedition-ready touring kayaks, but rather are best suited to an afternoon at the beach, cottage or campground, and short paddles on sheltered lakes, bays and slow-moving rivers. If you discover the kayak has an air leak, it may not be a deal-breaker. If the leak is a simple pinhole, you can repair the hole using the patch kit provided, or any PVC patch kit. Leaks along the seams of the kayak or at the valves will be more difficult to resolve; pass on any leaking used kayak that you’re not confident about repairing.
Removed the fill valve and reseated. Will swap pontoon fill values next to see if is changes sides. And the junction of pump hose and boat valve are pretty leaky. They leak if hose is not in "just" right position.Amazing product super simple to get ready and out in the water the only thing I would change is the angle the fishing rod holders sit at , would be nice if they were angled away from the occupant when you have 2 people in the kayak "
Sea Eagle produces some of the highest quality inflatable kayaks on the market. They utilize drop-stitching to keep the walls rigid, and use robust PVC to resist abrasion and impact. These upper-tier kayaks cost much more than Intex boats, but their lifetime is significantly longer. There are three main models of Intex kayaks, with two models available as a solo or tandem kayak. Each design is slightly different to match different activities. The Explorer and Challenger models are found within Intex’s budget-minded “Sport” series, while the higher-priced Excursion falls within the brand’s more feature-rich “Professional” series. Super-Tough laminate material with polyester core for high strength and durability, ensuring high impact and abrasion resistance, while retaining light weight and portabilityThis kayak is made of strong material, it can take a lot of abuse and still hold up, it won't puncture easily. Never mix alcohol and paddling. Coast Guard and state BUI (boating under the influence) laws apply to all vessels. This includes canoes, kayaks, SUPs and rafts.
