First things first; my wife and I have a Kevlar Spirit II that we love! It’s a joy to paddle, and so easy to load up and go. Kind of made me want a fast single, so I looked around for something cheap that might need work. Well, I found it - an old J-200 that needs more than a little work. (you might see the gaping hole in the photos) Serial # J2032C686. I’ve had it for years thinking I would learn how to repair Kevlar. Probably not going to happen. One guy told me if I paid nothing for it I paid too much. Oh yeah, it needs work on the wood too. Every good boat deserves better, and something tells me this is (was) a good boat. It has stickers on it from the USCA Nationals in 1990, and another from the Marathon Championships in 1986 - maybe the year it was built? It would be cool to know who was racing it back then.
Any information, interest or local offers are welcome. Steve Austin might be a good name for it. If I end up with nothing more than funky carport decor - that’s OK too.
