Hey serious question:
Have been looking at a kayak for some time. Hard to find one that's either small and light for cheap, or a bigger one with space (dog and myself plus gear) or a moderate price and the ability to add a small trolling or mud motor.
Kayak's that I've seen are either brand new and they realize they aren't gonna kayak anymore (new prices), super far away and predominately bright colors.
Anyways, I have the option to buy a Carsten Pintail for $500 ish depending on what kind of deal can be worked out. It's a bit of a drive, but I might be able to have a friend pick it up for me. I've been reading about the model, and think it would work out well. A bit heavy, but nothing too crazy, especially once I get a motor.
Is that a "must buy" price, or average? I see they are only $800 plus shipping new. I would rather have an aquapod, but I've only seen one in a 5 hr drive and they want $1200.
I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in.
