The Porta-Bote is a fold-up boat made of high-impact polypropylene, an engineered, impact-resistant industrial resin. The trademark 'Flexi-Hull' is able to dissipate wave shocks and meets U.S. Coast Guard strength specifications. Every model comes with three seats and has a 10-year warranty.
A number of accessories including an RV mount, a Porta-Dolly, oars and locks are available. The fold-up watercraft is reportedly stable, has good hydrodynamics, and is easy to transport and deploy.
Implications - As this design is pretty much unsinkable and it's also foldable, it is extremely safe and should be enjoyed by people of all ages. Should this Fold-Up Porta-Bote take on any water, rest assured it is still capable of floating without a problem.
