Looking for suggestions on active websites (besides PNet) which list used boats for sale. I’m interested in kayaks, but others may appreciate your suggestions re canoes. I have come across at least one site which appears to be “dead”–old listings, listers do not respond.
San Fran Bay Area - BASK
LA Area - California Kayak Friends
San Diego - San Diego Kayak Club
All have webpages with pretty good ads.
Check this site
Since you don’t have a public profile I don’t know where you’re located and logistics might be a problem.
Most of the listings are for creekers and playboats.
If you a looking for SOT’s, sometimes
a few rec and touring sit-ins, texaskayakfishing.com
is a pretty good place. Always a good listing for used preferred fishing type kayaks. Just missed by a phone call getting a Seda Gypsy PL, 15ft, for $300 and there’s a Dagger 14ft Charleston for sale there now. Other kayak fishing sites are also pretty good for SOT’s used.
check out your local paddling clubs…
…some have online newsletters with a classified section. And I have found great deals in the local newspapers & at yard sales. You’re much less likely to get a good deal on ebay because too many people are wanting it.
Last but not least, keep checking the classifieds right here on pnet…I always do & every now & then you see a bargain (but it’s usually gone!).
Manufacurer’s Sites & Forums
Active forums usually have a buy-sell-trade conference. If the boat you want is foreign-made, check their importer’s sites. Sometimes demo boats are available. NRS has a gear-swap bulletin board.
