The Saturn FK396 fishing inflatable kayak combines precision engineering with user-friendly features, ensuring an effortless paddling experience. Its narrow profile and oversized high buoyancy tubes guarantee exceptional stability and maneuverability on lakes, slow rivers, oceans, or bays.

It's important to note that the FK396 is not equipped with a self-bailing mechanism. However, if you intend to navigate whitewater rivers, you have the option to manually create self-bailing holes in the kayak bottom. Alternatively, the highly absorbent ShamWow type of fabric, widely available in retail stores, offers an effective solution for removing excess water from your non-bailing kayak. Simply immerse the ShamWow in water and squeeze it outside – functioning as a makeshift pump for hassle-free water evacuation.

Type PFD IV flotation cushion

For added comfort and versatility, consider accessorizing with a type IV flotation cushion, readily available in retail and outdoor stores for around $10. This cushion not only elevates the kayak seat for improved posture but also serves as a personal flotation device (PFD) in emergencies or doubles as a convenient beach seat cushion upon reaching shore.

The 13' Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396 has been a reliable companion for my fishing adventures. Its convenience and portability make it a top choice for me. The quality is satisfactory, and I have no complaints. Overall, I'm satisfied with this kayak.

The FK396's attention to safety is commendable. The double layer of PVC fabric on the air floor and top of the tubes, between the benches, provides added protection against accidental fishing hook accidents. Additionally, the option to use a type IV flotation cushion beneath the kayak seat not only increases comfort but also acts as a personal flotation device (PFD) in case of emergency. This kayak prioritizes your safety, ensuring you can fish with peace of mind.

Stability is a top priority for any fishing kayak, and the FK396 excels in this aspect. Its rigid high buoyancy tubes offer outstanding stability, allowing anglers to stand up and fish with confidence. The kayak's narrow profile and oversized tubes make it a breeze to paddle, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable fishing experience. Whether you're casting a line or reeling in a catch, this kayak provides a stable and secure platform to pursue your passion.

The FK396 V2.0 has proven to be an excellent fishing kayak. It's compact and easy to transport, perfect for my RV trips. The kayak's construction is robust, made of 1100 Dtex PVC, like Saturn's inflatable boats and rafts.

The gear tracks and rod holder patches are a wonderful addition for my fishing needs. I appreciate the kayak's flexibility, with its multiple configuration options. For those who value portability, durability, and versatility in a fishing kayak, the FK396 V2.0 is a worthy choice.

It's important to note that the FK396 is not a self-bailer, which means it doesn't have built-in drainage holes. While this may be a consideration for those planning to use the kayak in whitewater rivers, it is perfectly suited for lakes, slow rivers, oceans, or bays. However, if you do find yourself needing to remove excess water from the kayak, a super absorbent ShamWow can easily and effectively soak up the water, acting as a makeshift pump. This demonstrates the kayak's adaptability and the ingenious solutions that can be employed when needed.

The 13' Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396 has been a solid performer for me. It's easy to carry and store, which is a huge advantage. The quality is decent, and I have no major issues with it. I'm enjoying my kayaking experiences with this model.

The FK396 V2.0 does not come with benches, but instead offers sets of kayak gear tracks and pre-installed patches for fishing rod holders. While some may initially see this as a drawback, it actually presents an opportunity for customization. The absence of benches allows anglers to create their own personalized setup, utilizing the gear tracks and patches to attach accessories and fishing equipment exactly where they want them. This level of customization enhances the overall fishing experience, making it truly tailored to each individual's preferences.

What sets the FK396 apart is its incredible versatility. With two removable aluminum benches, you can customize the kayak to suit your specific needs. Attach rod holders, fish finders, GPS units, or even video cameras to the benches, enhancing your fishing experience with convenient accessories. Alternatively, you can remove the benches and install regular kayak seats for added comfort. The kayak's multiple D-ring attachments allow for endless configuration possibilities, giving you the flexibility to create your perfect fishing setup.

I bought this kayak used off of the FB marketplace. I've owned the Sea Eagle, Advanced Elements, and a hardshell kayaks, so I have something to compare it to. The Sea Eagle and AE make really good kayaks, though the Saturn is definitely a step above. It tracks very well, but not as well as my hardshell, which is a high end perception kayak. It is heavy and bulky, but not any more bulky than my Sea Eagle. I will gladly sacrifice durability for weight.

The FK396 inflatable kayak has proven to be an excellent addition to my fishing gear. Its portable design is perfect for carrying around and storage. The kayak's construction, akin to Saturn's inflatable boats and rafts, is durable and reliable.

The FK396 V2.0 comes with gear tracks and pre-installed patches for rod holders instead of benches. Its adaptability is commendable, with the option to use it in multiple ways, from a canoe to a motorized kayak. I'm thoroughly impressed with the FK396's performance and flexibility.
