9780071408097: Complete Folding Kayaker, Second Edition

Most kayakers paddle a boat with a rigid hull. Yet a distinct group of enthusiasts paddle "foldables", portable kayaks that can be assembled and disassembled in minutes, packed in a backpack and carried by plane, train or car just about anywhere. Foldable kayaks are more seaworthy, more durable, more versatile, easier to maintain, and more stable than hardshell kayaks. This new edition of "Complete Folding Kayaker" is both updated and enhanced. The best source of information on portable kayaks available.

From the Back Cover:

"An encyclopedia of invaluable knowledge."--Canoe & Kayak

Folding kayaks are the only seaworthy boats you can store in the corner of a small closet and carry to the bay, lake, river, or ocean of your choice. Ralph Díaz, editor and publisher of the Folding Kayaker newsletter for more than ten years, has used and worked on nearly all of the folding kayak models available and knows all the ins and outs of choosing, assembling, paddling, traveling, modifying, and maintaining them.

The Complete Folding Kayaker, the first guide to choosing, using, and enjoying this most liberating of personal watercraft, is now updated with more boat reviews, more modification tips from readers of Folding Kayaker, and a new chapter on assembly. So pack your kayak for your next adventure on the water!

"Indispensable."--Atlantic Coastal Kayaker

"Ralph has written, quite literally, the folding kayaker's bible."--Robert Huszar, ANorAK

"An essential resource for anyone interested in buying a foldable."--Outdoor Traveler

"This book is the one to get if you want to find out about folding kayaks."--Cape Codder
