    2017 Necky Elias fibreglass Kayak $2300 CAD

    Here are some photos of the boat and gear:

    This is an awesome boat in great condition. It has been well used and well loved for two seasons, for both expeditions and kayak surfing. It has great primary and secondary stability, tracks well (especially with the skeg), and turns on a dime. It is also a good roller. The cockpit is roomy and the seat is comfortable. It has ample storage for expeditions.

    The kayak has been well maintained, rinsed with fresh water after use and regularly sponged out. It has also been recently waxed with UV protectant wax.

    Structurally, the boat is in like-new condition. It has a few cosmetic dings and scratches, but overall looks great. The hatches stay bone dry even in rough conditions.

    The boat also comes with everything you need to get out on the water: A Stohlquist men’s small/medium PFD, two paddles, Snapdragon spray skirt, bilge pump, inflatable paddle float, throw bag, and even a foam roof-rack (although you will need to bring ropes or straps to secure it).

    Here is a link to the Necky website, with details about the kayak:

    Here are a couple of reviews (please note that this is the composite fibreglass version of the boat, and some of the reviews are for the polymer version):
