    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    I remember seeing ads in the backs of magazines when I was a kid for something similar, Folbot, http://www.folbot.com/kayaks/

    It would be good for hiking to remote locations, and make portages easier, if it isn't too hard to assemble and dissemble.

    Folboats have been around since the 50s. They do pack down (my dad had one for years) but are really heavy.

    Interesting.....pretty close to an ultralight kevlar canoe, weight-wise, but less $$$....certainly less $$$ than a kevlar kayak.

    Wow! Just wish it could fold into a half more? It still looks big to lug around. Well, at least for me since I'm a 5'2" shorty.
