The best kayaks in the shop for a composite kayak superior close fit, at 1/3 the price. The lowest decks and narrowest width for the athletic built gal or guy up to 180 lb or more depending on leg size. We bought up several after a very short production life - nothing else like them in the industry even today.||yellow,ruby/maize or blue||17'||22"||59||poly||$1099|
|Pungo classic||The original, stable, fun recreational kayak. Humongous cockpit. With hard chines and trihedral bottom shape, this boat tracks like its on rails similar to a 15' touring version.

|Sealution II w rudder||Classic touring, dependable performance See description below.||ruby||16'6"||22"||57||poly||$1050|
Small to large paddlers to 200 lbs. The original "sea kayak" from Wilderness. If you want a budget priced tough as nails kayak for Mississippi or large river paddling, you'll enjoy this choice. It has tall deck height, and accomodates big guys feet very well - a point lost on todays kayak designers. The kayak hull design is mostly flat, with slight shallow V, and accomodates beginners to intermediates nicely. We have this kayak version available for rental with one days rent toward purchase.
|Sealution II XL w rudder||Large volume touring and a rare find for the larger paddler.This boat has consistently been our go to choice for the 225 to 275 lb paddler guy with athletic build. He just can't fit 95% of the boats on the market. A full on sea kayak at 17', with very tame cross section design, and well mannered in big water. Like the other Sealutions, big cockpit deck height, foot room, and still a 23" width for performance. If you fit this, don't pass this deal by. Just 2 brand new ones left in the industry and we have them on sale.||yellow or blue||17'||23"||60||poly||$1175|
|Sealution II XS||
Defined keel line that makes this boat track very straight without need for a rudder. Gentle cross section, turns well, responsive. We like this boat for our rentals and classes due to its generous one size fits all cockpits and beginner skill level hull shape. A great choice for the large paddler, especially guys with size 13s that can't find anything else that is comfortable.
|granite emerald or ruby||14'9"||24"||55||poly||$799|
|Twocan||Forget the name. Call it Edsel, No call it One Can. This is the best cross trainer I have come across, period.. If you need sea kayak speed in a competition class plastic sit on top kayak, consider this boat. Buy it for athletic built paddler up to about 190, and not for two adults unless you are both low weight. Your bottom gets wet in 2 person useage, but never in one person. And the boat is not designed to be stable, it is shaped for speed. The hull has the familiar Tri- hedral tracking lines like a Pungo, and goes ruler straight. Add seatback from our selection.||gray||15'10"||27"||57||poly||$584|
|Osprey||A real deal complete kayak package with (2) O- ring sealed hatches, drain plug, adjustable aluminum foot pegs, and built in backband that provides better support than most. If you need a pair of kayaks for the family or cabin, you will love this choice. You can rent the bigger version, and credit one rental toward purchase. Performance is better than most with their 22" water width topped by a wider sponson above the water giving high secondary stability so you can't tip this plank over. Bottom is comletely flat, for easy beginner level paddling. Cockpit well is 18" wide, and fits paddlers to 5'10" or 5'11". Capacity 250 lb.||red or mango||13'1"||29"||57||poly||$529|

Super easy to wash out, and no special car top racks are required. 320 lb. capacity.||red||12'||34"||61||poly||$542|
