I am looking at a used kayak - a Fusion Beach by Future.
It appears to be a recreational boat, but that is what I am looking for I think. I want a cheap boat I can leave on the roof without losing sleep about, just to play on lakes, the sound side on the Outer Banks and some rivers like the Rappahannock River.

bring up some of the short comings... but I am very new to kayaks... I just don't want to repeat the mistakes I made on my first mtn bike 20 something years ago... ie just not buying enough bike and fixing cheap parts for a year before upgrading!
so what says the paddlers? Worth it? $200 with a PFD but no paddle...
what else do I need? The air bags mentioned in the reviews, a paddle, something to attach to my Thule bars?
