  Not without compartments!
  Posted by: sternman on Feb-08-13 9:45 AM (EST)
 

If you take a rec boat out on open water it better have sealed compartments. I've had more than one experience recovering a flooded kayak without bulkheads or flotation. It's very difficult. With so much water it's very hard to T-rescue and empty. In a rescue situation I would likely take the victim back to shore and set the kayak adrift. Not something I want to deal with.
