My personal experiences with the Sevylor Pointer included plenty of good and bad. My first inflatable, it was simple to set up, took little time to inflate, and was equally easy to pack up when done. Transportation was simple, which would have made it a great second kayak to keep in the car for impulse trips and short weekends. Stability was low, as expected; but on the other hand, it was nicely lively, and great for surfing small waves and boat wakes on large lakes and near-shore waters (in my case, Puget Sound). Great on calm water, it was reasonably stable on moderately rough water. Not fast, but comfortable and pleasant for spending the day just leisurely paddling around.
On the bad side, it simply did not hold up. Within less than 3 months of use, the seams started to come apart - not tearing, just detaching. Worse, warranty service was pretty much out of the question. Response was slow, and the shipping cost would have been roughly half what I originally paid for the kayak. Aside from that, poor drainage made it difficult to dry out after use, and mildew is always a major problem in this climate.
I would consider buying it again if the construction quality and warranty service were better; but as it stands, it was a waste of money.
