(Very well) welded Raptor and Nelo slalom boat - both £250

Post by Rory W » Mon Sep 08, 2014 12:11 pm

Zet Raptor - only 3 months old, pretty good nick except for weld on one side. This was caused by hitting a sharp rock fast and puncturing the side, definitely not because the boat is on it's way out. I've welded lots of boats before, and am pretty confident this is really solid. It's lasted a month in Norway already! I welded inside and out and then put a big patch on the inside with plastic taken from another Raptor. I'd happily carry on paddling it but I'm off to Chile for the winter and buying a boat out there.

£250

Also Nelo slalom boat - don't know much about slalom, I bought this for £250 last year. I've moved the footrests down a bit, patched it up quite a lot, and only paddled it once. Just asking what I paid for it. Would suit someone around 75kg.

£250

Based in Durham, but might be able to sort something out transport-wise.

Rory,

What length is the slalom boat - 4m or 3.5m? Also, which model Nelo is it?

Cheers,

Graeme

3.5m, don't think it's that old. Not sure on model, will ask someone and get back to you.

Looks like the Raptor is sold.

Rory,

Thanks for the reply, I'm interested in the boat, but only if it fits me. I'm hoping the model should give me a guide as I'm a little heavier than the 75kg you suggest (more like 82kg)

Cheers,

Graeme

Hi Rory

Any chance of a few more photos of the Zet, just the hull in general would be fine and one of the outfitting?

Thanks

Chris

Sorry, the previous owner doesn't know the model either. As a guess I'd say you might be a touch on the heavy side for it? Previous owner was probably a wee bit lighter than me. I'm about 5'9 and footrests will now fit someone a bit taller and shorter than me.

Just remembered I have a brand new Immersion Research deck to fit this boat that I've never used that I could throw in for free...

Raptor is now sold I'm afraid.
