Think about it. Most popular playboats are Jacksons, then perm any options from a few others. Jacksons have now gone up in price by 25%....so have Dagger, Liquidlogic (though very rare in playboat world anyway) I guess. So yeah it will be difficult as paddlers are bound to think twice before buying new. I could be reading too much into it but I reckon the asking prices for used Jacksons are already increasing substantially on the various used kayak groups in Facebook. What it does do is make the cracking Wavesport Project X, now made in the UK. look like an absolute bargain new boat choice. Here's an example. https://www.brighton-canoes.co.uk/produ ... ject-x.htm
