I needed a quick fix to transport me back and forth to my newly purchased used 26 Grampian 26 sailboat which I currently have anchored across the back river, but didn't have any cash left! So looked at the Walmart website for an inexpensive solution.. and this being the cheapest inflatable boat they had, I ordered it.
Certainly didn't expect much for the $10 it cost (on sale, usually $25), but ended up being pleasantly surprised... It's construction so far seems rather good considering the cost, and it's stylishly attractive , and doesn't particularly look real cheap.
The picture displayed it to be green and white, but the one received is blue and white (which I actually like better). There are four separate chambers which need to be pumped up.. two in the floor, an inner inflation chamber, as well as the main outer one. The rope that threads through the outer rubber grommets are a nice and useful touch, and the oar holders are strong and secure.
Now, all that being said, I'm not implying it's a high quality boat - but it definitely is of a higher quality than what I expected it would provide.
I also ordered a $10 set of oars and a $5 bellows foot pump.. So my grand total, with free shipping to store came to only $26, and it solved my problem.
On the down side..
Calling it a "two person boat" is a bit deceiving. You COULD fit two people if need be, but not comfortably. It's more suited for one person.
The air valves in the floor stick up , so if your not carful you could easily accidently kick them open... however this would not cause you to sink.
So consider it more of a leisure toy, and not so much as a recreational craft.
Bottom line; I'm real happy with the purchase.
What a deal!
