Tis the season to dream of aqua adventures!


This is a video clip of a homemade craft....

this one is really nice but only for use off of another craft or a dock.. there is too much keel for bayous or sand landings I would think... it's cost? about $2400 Also, there is a side by side seater with a little bit more length.

this one is my choice..

and this is just an amazing adventure!
