where are saturns sold
 
Boats to go.com is a monopoly on boat in a bag.

I’ve been wanting a boat in the bag Saturn 15’Kaboat https://www.boatstogo.com/kayaks-sk4...SABEgKqGPD_BwE for like quickie trips + want it for a life raft on my pocket cruisers roof.

Seans like boats to go are the only place where the saturns are sold?

Main use other than life raft setting up bait nets, and seaching out small tributaries.
this will be my first legit kayak so thanks for any decent advice.

I bought an 18 ft PVC boat from them. I would say stay away from the PVC boats as the seams will come apart in 3-4 years, regardless if you keep it inflated or not. Heat will make it come apart. Just a heads up.

dam thanks for talking me out of that PVC what do you recommend hypolan. I'm mostly seeing dinghys when I'd prefer a kayac type.
edit:the saturns seams seam very well made.where did you're come apart? didn't you try to reglue?

It came apart at the tube seams in the front. I re-glued two seams already but another seam would let go,I threw the boat away did not want to have an issue while on the water with the kids. Hypalon is a much better choice for hot weather.

I'll be reconsidering my dingy options for hard type hull. original plan was to have a boat in a bag that inflates quickly also to stow either inflated or in the bag, on the cabins roof.


did you leave you're vessel in direct sunlight? or was it stored in the bag inside air conditioned house?


​​​​​​​when vessel is inflated & on the roof it will definitely need a sun cover to protect the rubber.

It was in my garage semi-inflated. Even their website states that 3-5 years is all you will get out of them.
