  • A. Yes, it does self bail. If you are in the surf(good surf boat) and are taking on water, open the plug at the rear. It acts like a scupper when the boat is wet, and controls water accumulation. Your boat will still have a puddle of water in the bottom but because the boat has great flotation, the scupper will let water drain, keeping you from sinking. The scupper is right at the water line when the boat is floating if it's not heavily overloaded. That's one of the nice features of this boat, it actually does self bail allowing white water use. There are outfitters that use these boats to teach white water river kayaking. It also works very well for surfing ocean waves. The scupper is just a fringe benefit of the nicest feature of this type of boat. The whole thing is a big flotation device. That also makes it a floating airbed. When I'm tired, I paddle out to the middle of a calm pond or lake and just drift around all stretched out on my floating air bed, reclining ,with my legs over the sides and my feet in the water.. Amazing comfort for a kayak. I love this little boat. Oh and another great feature. Two of these with paddles and life vests fit into one large or two smaller totes which will fit nicely in the trunk or under the rear hatch of nearly every car even a Prius. There are minuses however. The boat is slower than a hard keeled kayak and you have to paddle harder so it will get you in shape if you take day long trips up a river or around a big lake. The seats leave something to be desired as they are not very supportive but you can move them around anywhere in the boat. Better seats are available at Sevylor's web site. So is a hard plastic keel fin that is highly recommended. It will make it much easier to travel in a straight line and helps tracking in windy conditions. You get a mixed bag of compromises when you design one boat for all conditions but this boat will do everything that can be asked of a kayak and then some.

  • A. not sure what "self bail" means but your legs aren't "trapped" in you can be out safe and quickly

  • A. No. It doesn't self bail. It must be paddled to either shallow water or the shore and dumped. However, if hauling lots of gear there is a huge plug in the bottom of the boat at one end which can be removed to help remove water without completely unloading the boat. With this plug removed one can simply pick up the other end of the boat, watch all the water run out of the hole, and then replace the plug. The Sevylor K79 Tahiti Kayak does float high and relatively dry however. So another popular method of dealing with water is just to keep a large sponge with you and mop up any water that gets inside before it becomes a problem.

  • A. Of course it is, it is one of the safest boats you can buy. With multiple chambers, it would take a serious accident to sink it. You could get carried away by wind, waves and currents but stay close to shore where it's rough and on calm days, go visit an oil rig if you wish. The boat is inflatable and seems toy like but it is made of tough PVC and can take white water rivers and surf, no problem. You might hurt your butt bumping those rocks but the boat will be fine. Open the scupper in the rear of the boat if you are taking on water and your boat will stay high and dry(almost). The natural bouyancy will get you through almost anything.

  • A. might not be -- only good for short distances in calm conditions -- very lightweight so vulnerable to winds -- bottom will puncture on rough shore landings

  • A. Sure it is. I would just use common sense as far as weather, distance, load, purpose, etc.. You wouldn't want to get lost in it or wash up on some rocky, wave-battered shore 20 miles from civilization!

This is a great value for the money. It does need a high-volume low pressure inflator (a tire pump won't work) such as you would use for an air mattress. Walmart has an Ozark inflator for $10 that works from the car just fine. The kayak inflates quickly, holds up well to both kids and adults, is very comfortable and paddles very nicely, even in a high wind, though that makes it very slow going! Highly recommended. We got it for a family outing and it was a real treat for the family. Everyone enjoyed using it. The fact that the seats are not fixed in place made it nice to configure for one or two passengers. It is roomy without being too unmanageable.

Great value for the price. Doesn't have a lot of direction unless you purchase the skeg for it. If you like just floating in the water then it's for you. The skeg runs $24.99 on the brands website.

This is a great little raft if you don't care about the direction that you travel. The boat tends to blow with the wind. It's more of an inflatable canoe than kayak. I found the seat inserts to be useless, both broke minutes after inflation, and even before breaking provided little back support. I like to use it more as a "hammock" on the water, nice to just relax and float around, but don't expect to make it a straight line back to shore when you are done napping.

This was a great deal and you get what you pay for. My only complaint is it is not self bailing.
