    Selling my Telkwa HV
    What's it like?
    1) It's a Nimbus. Local quality build. Hard to find used and they hold their value better than most. 9/10, because no one is perfect.
    2) Stability. You'll have a hard time finding a more stable boat in all conditions. 10/10
    3) Manoeuvrability. Well it's not a sterling. But it is surprisingly nimble for a 18 ft boat. It actually turns better than most 17 ft kayaks I have tried. 7/10
    4) Tracking. It is not as if it's on rails. But it tracks quite well and is quite neutral in side winds. 7/10
    5) Volume. It's huge. You won't find a bigger boat unless you get your hands on an Delta 18.5 ( But it is thermaform) or find an old Necky Pinta. 11/10
    5) Speed. It is not a race boat, but it's not a dog. I can keep up with friends in a Necky Tahsis. But I'm sure I'm working harder. As far as big volume boats go, it is faster than most. 6/10
    6) Seaworthiness. You'll be comfortable in conditions that you wouldn't enjoy in lesser boats. 9/10
    Who is it for? Big guys on long trips. It has a big cockpit and large hatch openings. If you are 200 lbs and up and going for a week with your 2 burner Coleman stove and a chair, this is your boat.

    Dimensions : 18'3" x 24.5" x 14.75" deep.
    Cockpit : 32.5" x 17.5" inside measurements
    The boat has a few scratches but otherwise in good shape.
