Kayak, 17 ft. Venture Skye touring, with rudder, excellent condition for sale in Westerville, OH

1 of 2
This is a very lightly used royal blue kayak. It has fore and aft hatches that are enormous with supple "tupperware" style lids that do not require being lashed down. They are water tight. It has a third "day hatch" behind the cockpit. That lid is of the same style and in perfect condition as well. It has multiple deck lines for on-deck storage. This is an extended trip kayak that will hold a HUGE amount of gear. It has a cockpit cover for transport and storage. Foot pegs for the rudder are easily adjustable to multiple leg lengths and can be locked in place. The rudder is a flip up style that deploys easily. This kayak does not have a skeg of any kind. I am selling because I have a tall car (CR-V) and I am 5'6", which isn't short, but the kayak is about 63 lbs. and very hard for me to lift overhead to mount. It would be ideal for someone taller, or with a shorter loading point. It is fabulous to paddle, even in the wind. The seat has adjustable back and thigh straps for a custom fit while paddling. The kayak has comfortable thigh braces, although I have never tried to roll it. There are no ruptures in the bulkheads. The body of the kayak is not warped in any way. All the deck lines are intact without dry rot and some extras have been added along with a beverage holder on the bottom of the cockpit. This comes with a sprayskirt that is REALLY nice. It has cargo and hand warmer pockets. I have two paddles. One is 110 cm and one is 120 cm. The longer paddle is a Werner Skagit with 60 degree adjustment in feathering and has been used twice. It was $130 new. I would sell both paddles for $100. I have a bilge pump and deck bag. Those would be $50 (over $80 new and never used) I have Keelguard that I have not applied yet. It was $1 per foot and I believe I have 16 ft. I would throw this in free. It's easy to apply and there are multiple youtube tutorials. This is a flat bottom kayak, which is a bit different than most, but if you read reviews, the rudder (also in perfect functioning order)gives great tracking in the roughest waters and wind. For downwind use, I actually have a kite that is rated for kayaks. It fits in the day hatch and I am not selling it, but it's a great addition to the kayak. The roof rack I have is a Yakima Bowdown complete with all secure point ties. I got it for $125 and would sell for the same amount. The kayak has been stored in a garage out of direct sunlight, so it has no weather fading of the hull. Depending on your location, I would be willing to transport for gas money. Please include "Venture" in any emails, so I can weed out the spam. Thanks http://playak.com/article.php?sid=7499 This is a link to reviews with pictures. Mine is the electric blue color, not yellow.
