answer 3
Depends on the size of the child but I would say yes. If you get too much weight in the back then it will pull the kayak down, but you may be able to pull it off. I put a cooler in the back that weighed a few pounds and had at least 24 beers in it and it held up fine so depending on their weight it maybe possible. They can fit inbetween the legs but it might not be the most comfortable. If you are floating down a creek or river though you prob won't have to paddle much except to steer so it would probalby work.

answer 6
The directions note a "child seat." Owning the item, this is a small raised area that a small child could sit in front of the adult between their legs. The adult would either have to paddle in front of the child or have the child sit far enough in front of them (requiring the child to be self supporting) to paddle behind the child. I can imagine figuring out a way to do this.

There is a molded infant seat in front where the rod holder hole is located between the legs of the paddler. I wouldn't exceed the total weight limit recommended. And always insure you utilize approved PFD's. That's Personal Floatation Devices.

For ease of use and stability I like a sit on top. Sit ins can swamp and they are tough to navigate in and out of...sit on tops...well you get it...just plop down and start paddling. The only variance is the inflatable sit ins but you need to spend some $ for a good one and even then a well placed submerged limb can cause big problems

I think sit on tops are safer for the inexperienced kayaker as your legs can't get trapped if you overturn in rough water, and they are self bailing so you will never sink one even in heavy surf or whitewater.

I like the sit on.....easy to jump in the water to cool off, then get back on. The "sit in" ones offer lots of hiding places for creepy crawalies, especially if you store them on the beach/outside.

My personal feeling is that sit on is better for slow moving touring. It's not tippy at all. I can shift my weight around without feeling uncertain and I have been out on it for a few hours without any pain in my back which is very nice.

answer 3
This is a sit on top. We purchased 2 of this model and 1 of the blue model that is a sit in. We hated the sit in model after using the sit on tops. We even returned it. It was harder to paddle. If you got water in the boat you couldn't get it out without flipping the kayak over. There was no storage space unless you put stuff inbetween your legs. It was longer and heavier and about 50$ more.
