I get you are not trying to be disrespectful about my "lack of judgement" but I think that you are missing my intended use or I am not being clear enough. I have ZERO plans of taking any paddle craft out on the lake beyond a 1-3 foot day. Never going to happen. 1-3 foot waves won't even fold a pool raft in half. My point is that I don't want to risk a swim into shore if something goes wrong. The boat I have now is uncomfortable and will sink if filled. I can't stretch out in it or adjust where te seat is. I don't want to go on long expeditions over several days, I am not touring. I understand there are trade offs to inflatables that make them undesirable for the types of use being described above, but for an occasional paddle on the water I live closest to. I have lived by the lake my whole life, have seen it in its many states and I know when is a good time and when it's not.
