in search of information

Post by Kris_G » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:03 am

Morning all. I recently purchased an old (1990's) Point 65 North kayak. I had a bit of a problem identifying the exact model so dropped Point 65 an email with some images. They very kindly replied telling me that it was a K1s from the 90's. I am after any information about this model that anybody may have- stability, build quality, how much weight it can carry etc. I am relatively new to kayaking and this will be my first boat in many many years. it would be nice to know what to expect/look out for, when i do manage to get it on the water for the first time.

any help/advice will be greatly appreciated.

many thanks kris

Sorry, me neither, I was replying to the OP's request for info about P65N K1 - and the possibility that it could be K1XP or less likely a K1RS. What we really need is pics of the boat to confirm the ID. Well done finding the review - I should have spotted that myself.
