Only trouble with that is, you've got to carry around a canoe sized/shaped piece of thin ply. That's fine if you're car camping, but then you might as well have a normal open boat if the car is going to be doing the carrying.a piece of thin ply in the base to protect it.
I have to say before i bought my first one i was skeptical about all areas of it, bought the Intex K2 Explorer first and me and my bro took it on the River Tyne, we both gingerly got in being that i am 110 kilo and he is 90k which was about the maximum recommended payload of the gadget, within minutes all skepticism was gone, we now use a boat each and our kit, highly recommend getting a skeg for the bottom especially if like me you use it on tidal waters, we lost a skeg off the Intex once going backwards down a set of small rapids when it got stuck in a gap between rocks and pulled out and it took us nearly 2 hrs longer than normal to paddle home down the tidal stretch of the river
Out of the Intex K2 Explorer and the Sevylor Tahiti Plus 2 i prefer the Intex model, it has more comfortable seats, it tacks better in tidal waters, it's lighter and fits in a rucksack (albeit a big one), this does not mean i dislike the Sevylor model though just in comparison side by side use the Intex shines a bit brighter, love them both
It is great used solo, i put my dry bag of kit jammed in behind my seat and the rear of the boat and it fits perfectly and adds extra support to my seat which my back thanks me for greatly, another great thing about the K2 on top of everything else is it comes with everything you need to get started.
We are just waiting for the weather to fair up a bit and we are going to do the Great Glen Canoe Trail with the Intex and Sevylor (sticking to the shoreline whilst going through the lochs).
As long as you stick to the coast and make big open water crossings in only the finest of weathers you'll be sound, Lomond gets some big waves on it and loads of boat activity, we've had some fun with big boat wakes
