Hello all! Trying to gain some insight on kayakbuying new versus used. I’ve searched a lot and read several threads, but can quite find what I’m looking for. I’m looking for my first kayak and and trying to determine if, for the same amount of $, am I better off with a new boat of a certain level (I.e. Perception Conduit 13) or a higher level used boat (Carolina, Pungo, Manitou, etc). FWIW, I’m 42 YO, 5’9", 200#. I should also add that I don’t ever expect to see salt water in this kayak–lakes/ponds/maybe the occasional river or creek.
Anything anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.
