NYCkayaker the Clear Blue Hawaii folding kayak

Harry Spitz wrote with surprise about the kayak made by Clear Blue
Hawaii. All of us should spend less time at our keyboards and more
enjoying, or enduring, the cultural life of the City, at least when we are
not on the water. Since the renewed Museum of Modern Art reopened last
year a Clear Blue Hawaii Napali folding kayak with transparent skin has
been hanging from the ceiling in the Architecture and Design section on (I
think) the third floor.
When I first saw it I thought it was a variety of the New Zealand made
First Light that Randy Henriksen had in his store last year. Both look
good and are astonishingly light but were designed with complete disregard
for my immodest foot size.

A non paddling friend just sent me the following link.
At first I thought that these looked cute, even nice. The clear plastic
folder looked almost respectable. But the more I looked the more I realized
that these are all swimming pool toys posing as serious sea worthy craft. I
think that some of these may be joining the flabby fleet of inflatables out
on the Hudson next summer. The paddlers in these images don't wear PFDs or
spray skirts. None of these boats have bulk heads and most have no float
bladders or inadequate floatation. None of these boats have foot pegs.
