Sea King £100
This is a classic 17' sea kayak from the 1980s. It is a hard chined boat with what I think might be described as a semi-ocean cockpit. Considering its age it is in quite good condition. There are a couple of repairs along the keel; no attempt has been made to hide these, and there are a number of superficial scratches and cracks on the hull and the deck. The boat is watertight, and the hatch covers and the deck lines have been replaced within the past 12 months. The Chimp pump works well enough, but it is a bit perished. I think the boat has beautiful classic lines.
The kayak handles very well.
This boat would suit someone who has an interest in these classic kayaks. It could be a beautiful boat if it were restored. It doesn't suit my preferred style, which is poking around the rocks and exploring caves and gullies.
I can roll the boat easily, and even self-rescue with a bit of effort. The primary and secondary stability are both ok.
A very good condition neoprene deck is available at extra cost, if required.
Cash on collection from Ross-on-Wye.
