    On several wilderness trips in middle school, we'd make these ourselves from plastic bags, worked wonders! We'd just be chillin' on the lake instead of paddling crazy :D

    Normally we would explode the info in that link so we have it in case link goes away but this link is not possible, but I will post a pic of it - just cause it's cool.

    Looks like fun. As kids we would go out on the lake with the blow up personal rafts and raise up the one end and sail. These (and there are some other inexpensive variations) look cool and fun - and actually useful.

    It is called a (for future interested googlers) "Kayak Sail Instant Wind Sails Kit Easy Canoe Sailing 108cm Portable Deploy Blue"

    And what it looks like. And thanks for the link - never thought of this as available!
