Kayak for Sale
Randy Bullock writes us:I have a Wilderness Systems Alamax for sale, a sit-in. You have to be able to roll this boat, which is not hard once you learn. It is designed for waves and has fins in the back. It is in excellent condition and comes with everything you need. Spray skirt, paddle, really nice paddling life jacket. $400.00. The boat is a lot of fun, I just don't have time to enjoy it.
I also have Yakima roof racks in excellent condition to carry any kayak for $300.00.
