The Gumotex Baraka would maybe handle it. There was one in the local Tiso for a while and it was a fair size.

I met a couple on Loch Lomond one day who were in a big black inflatable that would definately do the job. I've no idea what make it was and just had a rummage around the net with no success. Looked like it might have been military issue.

If you can afford it folding canoes might be worth a look.

Hi folks.
We bought a Sevylor Colorado(I think) on Ebay last spring.It is allegedly a 3 seater but would be better as a 2 man with your kit.Comes with a carry bag,paddles,pump,keel and a repair kit.
I was very dubious about the robustness of these beasts but it has a reinforced shell which seems pretty bulletproof when fully inflated.It's quite heavy to carry and I'm not sure I'd want to do alot of white water in one.BUT we took ours out when my wife was training for the Great North Swim to use as a safety boat and it was very impressive on the lake.Faster than my mate's fibreglass Canadian and easy to steer and beach.Damn good lake transport for £300 ish if I remember right.
Hope this helps.
Simon

+1 for the sevylor, i have the Hudson, took it on a 4 day tour of the norfolk broads with a mate, a serious amount of gear/food/fishing tackle, it performed admirably!

Eastwards!
I have a 'Gumotex' single and my friend has a double which, when it was new, was called a 'Safari'.
I've had my little Solar now for over ten years and have had no trouble with it. I've mainly used this to explore parts of the East coast estuarys where a bigger vessel can't go. Places like Fawley near Southampton water, Brightlingsea, Maldon and parts of the London river are now familiar. I have usually had a 'mother ship' nearby so the journeys have never been more than three or four hours. I now have a 'dinghy suit' and this will help with the 'wet bottom' situation. I would still like to visit Faversham and some of the Kent coast but my friend tells me that cannibals live in Kent so I am a little nervous of that area!
I have carried another person but only for short trips ashore and the hull needs to have been blown up hard.
Hope this helps....There are now many choices too as the range has expanded somewhat.
Swyn.

I suggest you have a read through here Linky There's plenty to choose from. We own a gumotex baraka and that would easily cope with what you're suggesting, but it is a bit on the pricey side. I've also heared some good things about the seylor boats. If you really want to dream have a look at PakBoats Linky They're the ones that I always drool over.

I recently purchased a Sevylor Yukon. It's a little pricey compared to other Sevylors but I wanted something that could cope with weight and wasn't "stealth blue".

She's lovely... :)
