Kayaks are like shrimp in Forrest Gump.

There are sea kayaks. Tandem kayaks. Kayaks made for whitewater. Kayaks made for fishing. Bully for you if you’ve got the free time — not to mention the car racks, and the garage space — to use every variation.

Otherwise, allow us the present a convenient alternative: Point 65N Modular Kayaks, available for your multi-use pleasure right now.

Basically, these are LEGO-like snap-togethers you can customize for any circumstance.

For Your Next Date
The Mercury Tandem converts from single to double in seconds (check the vid). No need for two kayaks.

For the Coastline
The single-seat Mercury is ideal for cruising along the shallows of the Pacific. Its narrow build helps it cut currents, while the keel rudder and integrated skeg give it the quick-twitch control of a gator tail.

For Fishing
The Martini comes with a hatch for gear stowage, a paddle-park for handling flexibility and a molded-in ruler for measuring your catch.

All models ship within two days from iMarine, so by Sunday you could be paddling from Descanso Beach to Frog Rock — a 1.5-mile trip along Catalina’s eastern shore that goes through a kelp forest full of zebra fish, stingrays, sea lions, dolphins and pelicans.

Now snap to it.
