Lucky me got a Hudson from my better half as a birthday present and yesterday it took to the upper Thames like a Duck to water. As absolute beginners we were slightly apprehensive but within two minutes afloat, had confidence in the boat and its stability. Lots of room and a LOTS of bouyancy. I am tall and weigh in at around 130KG, better half at 50 and yet the Hudson is sprightly, manouverable and is a strong, strong boat. We love it to bits. And sitting sipping a cooling drink afterwards and watching others working out the logistics of getting their vessel back home, we deflated ours next to our pub table and walked away with the boat in a bag after just five minutes. Also,you certainly do not have to pay the prices shown here, which widen my eyes more than an oncoming narrowboat. Google is your friend.

Monstrous boat - can carry two full size adults and the camping gear for several days.

Caveats (I have found so far):

1. Because of the monstrous size it is significantly affected by changes of temperature in the air (usually downwards). If the water is colder than air by > 10C you will definitely need to top it up at least once.

2. It will dry easily and fully if and only if it is completely deflated and if you have taken the bottom bladder out. You need to move things around a bit while drying it. On a typical UK summer day 18-20C, overcast or sunshine and clouds it will take ~ 4h to dry it. If you do not take the bottom bladder out the time to dry is "forever" (as noted by many reviews on the Internet).

3. There is little or no feel of how much did you inflate the bottom bladder. You are better off with an inline manometer (not available on Amazon at present) or the proper Sevylor digital car pump which inflates to exact pressure.

4. The skeg is minimal and rather useless. This is a whitewater boat - it will is a bit "all over the place" because of its size and lack of stabilization. If you want to use it for deep water excursions you should consider some DIY-ing to fit a bigger skeg.

I have used this a few times on the river now and it's been great - I'm really pleased with it. I took my 11 year old children on the river and it was fine - it felt stable and safe. With a good (bidirectional, hand) pump it took about 10 minutes to inflate. Deflating was equally easy (again, my pump can deflate as well as inflate so that makes it easier).

One issue to be aware of is that drying the craft is difficult because water tends to go in under the side chambers. You need to deflate it and then open up the gaps in the side to let air in, or put towels in there and let them absorb the water, and put it somewhere warm and dry. It may not matter if it's not completely dry but it will probably go moudly if it's packed away while still slightly wet.

Another thing is if you want to buy a kayak type paddle with blades at each end. If you want to do that. you will need a VERY long shaft on the paddle, because the canoe is wide and water will drip into the boat from the raised blade if a short paddle is used. 215cm is not nearly wide enough (I found from experience!) and 230cm is probably the minimum. Even longer than that is better, but hard to get hold of. If in doubt it's better to go for the normal canoe type paddles with a single blade.

If you buy this canoe don't forget to get paddles, life jackets and you'll probably want some strong nylon twine or rope to tie onto the front to tether it.

Bought this for the family and have not been disappointed. Live on the South coast and have taken it out in reasonably choppy wavy seas and its handled it very well and is very stable. We tether ourselves to the boat and regular jump in for a swim and it's easy to get back into.

After a few uses, packing up becomes very easy, and while initially I struggled a bit inflating it with the Sevylor dual action hand pump, I realised there was something wrong with the pump, and once fixed, it's actually not been too bad. I am investing in a battery powered air pump though as it is a big craft.

I've had 2 adults and child in it, 1 adults and 3 kids, it's big and comfortable. It is also wider than typical kayaks so make sure you get longer paddles, I think I have the 2 part Sevylor 2.35m paddle which is excellent for this boat.

Had this boat for over twelve months. Used it a lot in Devon, took it to France and Bavaria.
It was great on the water when there are no leaks.
However it was forever leaking on the inner bladders. Not through over inflating but the inner bladder is made of cheap material (similar to a child's rubber ring) which splits on the welded seams.
Had two replacement bladders which were exactly the same.
Went out one day and all three bladders leaked. You could not trust it.
It was also very difficult to dry. Almost impossible and if you didn't dry it you got mildew.
Go for high pressure canoe with no inner bladder.

Having used a Hudson for 18 months now I can see both the advantages and disadvantages of this kayak. Firstly the advantages, we have a Volvo V70 with a roof box so don't have room to take a rigid kayak on holiday as well. This Sevylor deflates to approx. 2ftx2ftx3ft which will fit in most reasonable sized car boots (I would strongly suggest getting paddles which split in half and get the longer sizes as this is a wide boat). It is one of the strongest inflatable kayaks available at this price point and is easily large enough for 2 adults and a child (we even had 3 adults in it for short periods). It is incredibly stable and even on a sea with a small swell you feel completely safe. It only takes 5 minutes to set up once you've done it a couple of times and only slightly longer than this to pack away.
However, it is very susceptible (as are all inflatable kayaks) to being blown by the wind as so much of it is above the water, and it is also very sluggish being so big and having so much of the kayaks bottom in contact with the water. Against a head-on wind it's like paddling in treacle which limits the amount of days it is suitable for use in exposed (especially coastal) waters. If you are wanting a fast kayak to use at sea look at a rigid not an inflatable kayak! When fully inflated to the specs in the instructions it does feel as though it could easily pop. We have always used it under inflated which slows it down in water but will hopefully lengthen the life of the boat and dramatically reduce the likelihood of splitting the seems which as you can see from other reviews, can happen quite easily especially on a hot dry beach when the air in the tubes expands. It is also virtually impossible to dry it out which will lead to mildew.
