Heya!

Just putting my feelers out (first time kayaker here), I am looking at jumping on a Phoenix Hornet shortly (the better half has given me the go ahead so I need act fast before she changes her mind), just wondering if there was anything 2nd hand rolling around at the moment? My price range is sub $1000 and possibly needs to be in the Wellington Area or can be delivered without too much hassle?

Let me know

Thanks

A new Phoenix Hornet is $1000 so within your budget !.... and you'll get the factory warranty

Ferg's in Welly stock (and hire) a range of kayaks and you can take some for a test paddle. Not sure if they stock the hornet.
