Re: Jackson Fun 1 Kid's Kayak (Pink) - As new condition

Hi,

I'm afraid that ad was from 4 years ago and the boat has long gone! Good luck in finding one - I suggest giving Rhona or Aaron at Square Rock (http://www.squarerock.co.uk/wordpress/) a call as they may well know of someone looking to sell a smaller model in order to 'upsize'.

Best wishes,
Ben

The Palm Dynamo deck fits the small Jackson boats but it is quite tight until you are sure they are used to it. Cheer...
