Vancouver BC – New Blog by an Innova Inflatable Kayaker

LotusLander took his Innova Safari on its maiden voyage last week.

In his own words:

Finally, after many delays I managed to take my new inflatable kayak Innova Safari out for a paddle. A good place to put-in is Vanier Park by the Coast Guard station and the entrance of False Creek in Vancouver.

Putting together the boat was a real snap. The red hull is first unrolled on the ground; then the skeg is mounted under the stern; after the seat and footrest are to be inflated first, then the bottom chamber and sides last. All this is done with a foot pump. Getting myself ready with all the proper paddling clothes, etc. – one needs to be dressed for immersion around here – took longer than preparing the kayak.
