Time's come for me to sell my most loved kayak to date.

Old Town Predator XL with outboard mount and WITHOUT the minn kota electric motor. For the record, the outboard works much better than the electric motor that came with the kayak and having to cart a massive 30kgs battery around and still running out of battery power pretty quickly.

Photos coming tomorrow and I'll probably list it on TM over the weekend, but just wanted to see if anyone's interested to skip the TM fees.
Kayak's in a great condition and I'm looking for roughly 1/2 of the new price ($3249 + $299 on https://www.paddlerzone.co.nz/index.php ... ts_id=1458), so I'll take $1800 - just the kayak and two paddles.

UPDATE:
So it didn't sell on TM, although that was only a 4-5 day listing. I'm going to relist it on Sunday, but just checking in case someone wants to make an offer. Send me a PM whatever you're willing to pay for it - worse case I'll say no and best case you get a bargain.

That's pretty sad... Zero interest on TM

I guess it's a pretty specialized setup that works well for me, but not that common a requirement.

Everything will sell for a price, it just might not be the price you were hoping for. As you say, it is a specialised yak. It's big and would suit the bigger paddler. Unfortunately for you, the pedalos have taken off and probably fill quite a lot of this market. If it was me, I'd keep it rather than give it away.

Its pretty close to Christmas. I'm guessing some people will saving some money.

I'd love to buy it but i don't think i could use the pdl in the surf conditions in the BoP. Hope it all works out FoM.

Father o Many ...

If I had the money, I'd be beating a path to your door. But sadly, I'm working on enough shekels, for a new fish finder.

Well, I've got an offer... Hope the price goes up a little before the auction closes on Sunday, but whichever way, it's sold.

https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listin ... 1810369067

Had a minor op this evening (which happens to be hurting like hell right now!), so no fishing this weekend. That means last weekend was my last fish from the kayak. A little bit sad.
But I've ordered a little Smartwave boat and that'll arrive early in December, so looking forward to taking the kids with me for some father and son/daughter time!

Yeah, I'm happy with that. Seriously looking forward to the boat and picking up a new Mercury 30hp tomorrow. New way of fishing for me to look forward to.
