Everything about the kayaks I own is wet. Anything that isn't in a dry bag will be damp at the very least(this is the experience I've had on every paddle I've done where the water wasn't flat and I wasn't screwing around). Sure, the boat has "seals," but the seals all seem to breathe at least a little.
Part of this issue about co-mingling the boats seems to be missing an important point. Is there really a need for the boats to stick together? Yeah, I can imagine scenarios where there would be, but in this specific instance, as long as the daily route is the same, how much support do the various boats need and how close should they be to offer whatever support is required?
