I’ve been looking at solo canoes for fishing. I’ve been borrowing a friend’s future beach kayak, but want something with more room with a possibility to overnight. Although I haven’t paddled it, I’ve researched the Pack and think with a lowered seat, it is a good choice. I like that it is durable but only 33lbs.
I’ve found one used for $300, but needs some TLC (photo link below). Owner claims there are no leaks, it is just scratches and gouges, including the patches. I don’t know much about repairs but it looks like I can just get a 2 part resin kit, fill it, and sand it. The seat needs to be replaced, and a thwart at the end as well. This would roughly total $125-$150. Is this even worth it for $200 ?
I’ve been looking at a new Wenonah Fusion but $2k is a lot more than $425.
