    If you prefer a sit top kayak, that's totally reasonable, but that's a very different thing.

    This is 3x4 feet and weighs 14 pounds, so it's a bit easier to transport to and deploy at the dive site than a kayak.

    We just use kayaks.
    They give us range and get us out of the cold water when we’re done with the dive.

    I've got an innertube that does the same job.

    To add about using a kayak.
    I have a nice wheel dolly that the kayak sits on for easy transport from the truck to the beach. It has nice wide air tires so it doesn’t sink in the sand. I can put my scuba rig in the tank well, my weight belt in the kayak, anchor, fins and other things and wheel the whole thing down to the water in one trip. I can even take a spare tank if I want and change out tanks on the water. I have room inside the kayak for stuff too, drinking water, snacks, fishing license/car keys/I.D. etc. in a little otter box.
    I have plenty of room for my speargun too!
    During surface intervals I can lay back and warm up in the sun out of the water.
    My kayak is my second favorite piece of gear next to my S.C.U.B.A of course.

    That's very apparent.

    Did you notice all of the other items that the OP has available for sale?
