aire kayak foam floor opinions

Aire single kayak with foam floor,
Yes, bulky and canít roll with foam inside. Any other issues or concerns with a foam floor in an aire single kayak?

I know many who prefer the performance of the foam floor, and wish that it was available for new models. I like it well enough myself. You've already identified all of the drawbacks of the foam floor. Go for it.

With abuse those floors will eventualy start sucking up water like a sponge. This will turn a nimble boat into a very slugish boat. I once barowed an abused aire puma with one of these floors. the quote for the day was "I feel like I'm rowing a wet bag of cement down the river"

That's funny Willie, I just watched a video of us in that old Puma on the Gauley today! How's Winter Park? You should holler when you visit the Poudre this year.
