K pak folding kayak - amusing idea
NC inventor creates a folding boat
HARNETT COUNTY, N.C. (WNCN) — It’s still summertime, and lots of people are enjoying our lakes and waterways North Carolina. If you love the water, but don’t love lugging around a kayak or canoe, one Harnett County inventor has a solution. It’s called the K-pak folding boat.
“Basically it’s a skin-on-frame folding boat,” explained inventor Pete Flood.
All the pieces of the boat fit inside a backpack. The frame folds out; some pieces are attached; others are inflated. Putting the boat together only takes a matter of minutes.
Flood got the idea for the portable boat years ago while carrying a canoe down to Lake Jordan. “Everything is very heavy. We had to get it back up on the car roof and it just seemed like it was a lot of work,” said Flood.
After a lot of trial and error, the K-pak went on sale less than a year ago. The boat weighs about 21 pounds and glides smoothly along the surface of the water.
“Once you get used to it paddling it’s a very stable boat,” said Flood, who is already working on new designs for the future.
“Some people carry golf clubs with them. I carry a folding boat,” said Flood.
The K-pak goes for $895 and is currently sold online, though Flood is in talks with some retailers about getting the folding boats into stores. If you’d like more information, click here

“During my 6+ hour test on a river in Connecticut and on the choppy Long Island Sound, I kept experiencing two opposing disbeliefs: When I saw the kayak all packed up, I couldn’t believe the unit becomes an efficient, floating boat. Conversely, when I was on the water, I couldn’t believe I was paddling in a sectional kayak.”Kyle NossamanGearJunkie.com
“At exactly two feet wide, the Blue Fin is plenty stable through wind-blown chop and the occasional rogue wave. It does not feel tippy, and I felt confident just sitting idle in it. As the morning fog started to clear and the south end of Catalina Island was illuminated by the sun, I was momentarily tempted to see if I could reach it by Pakayak.”Corey HassOutside Magazine
“Just took this for a spin at Sand Key, Florida. A very well thought out design. A smooth kayak to paddle with great tracking!”Dave SurplusPakayak customer
“I am 68 (gasp) and attended a demo yesterday. I am in love with this kayak! I had it assembled in less than 10 min.! Being on the short side there were a couple of minor issues but once I saw and felt where the latches were, no problem. I love that the cockpit front is raised and the carry bag fitting behind the seat is genius. Can't wait to get mine!”Gay HarmonPakayak customer
“I will grant you that come Hell or High Water (and that is a good thing) that clasp is not going to pop open on its own. Make me feel safer knowing that the boat is together till I take it apart.”David
