    So, I accidentally bought another boat. The garage is getting too full to walk around in. My Tahe must go. It is advertised here with pics for $2000: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4755

    I'll take $1500 O.B.O. Used one season and stored in the garage since.
    What the boat is good at?
    Distance touring fast (Joe O'Blenis used a Wind 585 for part of his record around Vancouver Island)
    Narrow Boat
    Hard chines
    Room for lots of gear
    tracks well
    Rudder and skeg with easy removal of rudder if you want just a skeg boat (but rudder could be popped back on for long tour)
    day hatch in front of cockpit

    Challenges
    Not a beginner's boat
    An agressive paddler would make this kayak dance - if you are timid with edging/leaning it will not be super-maneuverable

    Interested buyers are welcome to take her for a good paddle. If I don't know you at all, I may want to join you on the paddle of your choice. :mrgreen:

    Feel free to ask more questions.

    Thanks

    $1200 :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Used for less than 60 paddling days. The boat is getting lonely now and I am worried that it will be depressed if it doesn't get out there to play soon. Good Christmas present for the intermediate paddler in your life. :wink:

    Hi Sheila, I know there is snow out there today, but is the boat still available?

    A few questions if it is.
    1) Is it $1,500 or $2,000
    2) What is the construction material (fiberglass or kevlar)
    3) What gear can you include in the price noted in #1 above? (I have none)

    Thanks,

    Taiga40 (James)
