Foldin Touring Kayak
Posted by: old_user on Jul-05-13 2:44 PM (EST) Category: Kayaks
Im looking for a folding touring kayak. Im about 6', 135lbs. I paddle on Lake Ontario, with a few outings to the Atlantic every year. I'd rather not spend a small fortune, so used would be fine.

Check out the Pakboats, they are reasonably priced.

There is a used Klepper T67 folder for sale at Foldingkayaks.org for $700. It's a touring model for an average sized person. Kleppers are known to be very durable and at 24" beam it should be fast and a good fit for you.

You are talking about big water so you need a serious boat. In addition to the suggestions already made, all of which are quite good, I suggest you take a look at Nautiraid and if you can find any on the used market - Long Haul. Nautiraid makes really durable folding kayaks that are reasonably priced.
