I'm looking for advice about buying a used kayak. Are there things to watch out for. What I am concerned about is the condition / shape of the plastic / poly. Does it weaken, get soft, get brittle over time? What should I be looking for when I look at a used kayak?
I checked out this site http://eartheasy.com/kayakpage.htm and found this list of tips:
Buying a Used Kayak
Hydrabadchick pretty much summed it up!!
Hi guys, I just wanted to share my latest scoop on the Internet with fellow kayaking enthusiasts, and maybe this can be helpful for you
I was browsing online, and found this cool new website doing market analysis and price reports on used goods online, and they had a blog post http://www.statricks.com/blog/renting-vs-buying-what- makes-the-most-sense-part-1.html about renting vs buying kayaks. This post had a lot of great tips for a new beginner enthusiast like myself, and I also signed up on their site so I can use it to check prices and compare sellers (or to new products). I’m planning on a kayaking trip to Gold Lake, Graeagle CA later this summer with friends who’s been “kayakers” for many years, and the blog post I’m referring to gave me some good pointers on how to finally make a good deal on my kayak.
Hope this can be useful for others!
