Comments about Point 65 Apollo Sit-On-Top Kayak - Bow Section:
This boat is compact, no frills, when taken apart it will fit in the back of my Jetta with the seats down. Assembles in seconds feels stable on the water.Storage is easy since the boat is in two pieces and is flat.
Now the cons, this boat tracks very poor and is slow. That is to be expected with an almost 9 foot boat. Some hand grips anywhere in the side would be great for moving only grips are at each end. No drains except for the seam means water pools around your feet, bottle holder, both cargo areas. Very low profile in the water makes it look like you are sinking compared to other kayaks. Very little literature came with this kayak.
Overall if you really cannot store a normal kayak then this is a good option to own your own boat. I am unable to store a one piece boat so that is why this boat makes sense for me. The boat is a compromise and that is its greatest pro as well as its greatest con.
