Need to sell my Kayak plus associated equipment.


The usual places to advertise are local online markets such as Kijiji or Used(city).com or similar sites. Better places are often run by major clubs or associations, MEC in Canada, or major websites about kayaking and canoeing. paddling.net is one example.

I have a Pungo kayak that is 12 feet long and weighs about 45 pounds. As I get older and can rely less on my wife's help, I'm thinking of a smaller, lighter boat. Your Pelican Pursuit 80 Deluxe Kayak...


Bob, my first suggestion would be to look into a transport system such as Hully Rollers or the Hullivator to aid in getting your 'yak onto and off of your vehicle and then using a collapsible kayak dolly that should store neatly in a hatch (or behind your seat if you don't have hatches) to transport your boat to the water.

Also, you could try paddling with groups if there are any in your area. Not only is it safer to paddle with at least two other people (the rule is three: one to get in trouble, one to run for help, and one to point and laugh...or provide aid, whatever), but it's a lot easier to load and move boats using two or more people.

Failing that, I think I would look at a nice fiberglass or carbon fiber boat rather than downgrading to a Pelican Pursuit 80 since you sound like you're on the ocean/in big water. They can be a little pricey, but the used market tends to be rather brisk and good deals abound. Above all, if at all possible, try it before you buy it.

Gauges in polyethelene kayak


Gouges? How big and or deep? Is it a problem in some way?

Poly kayaks get them and really all you can do is smooth the edges so they do not snag on things. Use a very sharp knife and a steady hand -- the less you cut the better. Do not be tempted to use a hot knife!!

What is the best way to remove oxidation from a fiberglass kayak. The color is very faded from years of direct sun exposure. Kayak is >15years old. I want to restore the original color and luster.


My kayak was nearly 30 years old & exposed to the elements all the time. To clean it up, I washed it down with the Amway Car Wash & polished with the Amway Silcon Glaze car polish.

The kayak came up beautifully & I'm still using it today

Is the yakima big stack safe for fiberglass kayaks


I used the big stack for my river kayaks and it did fine. But my fiberglass sea kayaks are so much heavier that I did not take the chance. For 1 of my kayaks I spent a lot of money to get the special sea kayak rack and it worked great. For my wife's kayak I saved some money and bought some simple v-shaped foam rubber rack attachments for $20. The foam attachments are so much easier, I don't even use the Yakima attachemnts any more. My suggestion - save your money and go with the cheap foam attachments.

Which kayak to buy


Plastic and fiberglass are the two materials the majority of kayak manufacturers are using today. Plastic kayaks are lower priced, have the largest selection of models and are known for being tough. The down side of a plastic hull is that it doesn't hold an exact shape, it's softer (therefore slower). It's close to weighing the same as fiberglass but you can't perform field repairs on it. Fiberglass is approximately $1000 dollars more for the equivalent-length plastic boat, but the hull is much stiffer, faster through the water and you can repair it. The down side to fiberglass is that it's more expensive, and if you drop it off the top of your car, you can crack it
