Thanks

Sure thing. It's an advanced elements inflatable kayak. The model is the Advancedframe convertible. Works great and is pretty damn stable. I'd definitely recommend getting the high pressure floor, which makes the floor much more rigid. Although they say it isn't necessary if you have the floor, we also got the backbone the goes down the middle of the kayak (under the floor). I've even been able to mount a rod holder towards the back.

It all goes stored in the bag you see in the left side of our truck bed. You know how usually it's hard to pack things back in the packaging the way you got it? Well, we've actually been able to pack the kayak, seats, backbone, floor, pump, small anchor, and life vests all in the bag you see here:



Here's a few more of ours:

I got it from these people. They were the least expensive and were great to deal with. All the info is on this page:

In your post you talk about a floor system. Looking at the site they seem to have more than one floor. Would this setup look like the one to get?
Advanced Elements | AdvancedFrame Convertible DS Series Inflatable Kayak | Convertible Accessories | AE1007DS

Thanks

Hi Gus

Do you mind if I ask which parks you took those shots in. They look like great spots to visit.

Thanks

Doug, yes sir that's the one. We actually debated getting that blue one as well. That color is apparently a special edition that is made just for them. I really like it but my wife was more particular to the orange one. Either way you can't go wrong.

A few pics of our last outing. Although somewhat repetitive, the different times of day make for very different looking pictures.....

One of the few times we've ever used the TV. Wanted to watch the game and unfortunately, my team didn't fare so well (it's ok though....as of this posting they're up 3 games to 1 )

Just posted a few pics in my other thread (Bambi-eye candy) of our outing last week to Lake Davis, CA. As I mention there, we took a bit of a long route. Our original destination was Union Valley Reservoir. I called the NFS beforehand and asked if it's pretty quiet during the week. The lady I spoke to replied, "oh yeah should be real quiet". But.....not the case. Was about 75% full and almost every campsite seemed to have 6 kid's bikes and just as many float tubes. So, not really what we were looking for. Lake Davis as always was great though. We left the kayak and took the inflatable boat with us to do a little fishing. Nice to be able to leave it on the lake-shore, close to our site. Here are some more photos:
