The Broad Cast
There are two basic types of kayaks available; sit-on-top kayaks and sit-inside kayaks. Sit-on-top kayaks have a closed upper deck with a seat built into or strapped onto the upper surface. Most will have scupper holes that allow any water which gets inside the cockpit or cargo areas to drain out. Sit inside kayaks have a cockpit in which the user sits. Kayaks intended for fishing and generally poking about will tend to be fairly wide and stable with room for some gear.
