I'm in the process of getting into a kayak or micro skiff. 14ft or smaller. I initially was looking at pedal kayaks like the Radar or Titan, but now I am interesting in these motored 'yaks' like the solo or rover. I want to have the extended range these class of kayaks offer, I'm coming from a boat. The durability of the rover over the galveston bay oysters concerns me. The long term durability of the solo skiff transom (thick HDPE only?) concerns me....would love to hear peoples opinions or experiences. I haven't seen a Bote Rover out here yet, its intriguing but pricey. And the epoxy construction seems like it wouldn't last after hitting a few reefs on plane.
