    I'm getting an error when I try to send a 'conversation'. Could you please contact me either by email (doug_king@telus dot net) or my home number (604-463-6627) after 7 this evening? I live in Maple Ridge and would plan to come over sometime this weekend to check it out if that works for you.
    Doug

    I have a black pearl. It's a very fun kayak to paddle and roll.
    Great price but I can't paddle two of them at once.

    Can I try the Black Pearl out before it is sold? Just to compare it to a Tahe.
    And if the sale to Doug falls through, I'm a possibility.

    Will have to know cockpit size so I bring the right tuilik.

    Yes, a great deal at $250 as you wouldn't get much of a start on the materials for that. Strip boats are a hard sell generally,though.....I sold my (quite nice) Outer Island for $500 IIRC and my strip Romany copy sold for $1200 after a long stretch on the market.

    No typo, looking for a good home. Built in 2012 so I’ve had a few good years with it.

    Al, I’ll be going up to Quadra on Thursday. Could meet you at the ferry (not sure what time yet) with BP and then pick it up on Friday. Cockpit is 23 x 17.5

    That's great. Any time will do, just let me know in advance.

    My Tahe tuilik will fit just fine.

    Sorry, two potential buyers ahead of you. Pretty certain it is sold. I’ll get back to you if not but not before Sunday.

    Boat is quite narrow and didn’t suit Paddlesores. Nootka was next in line and has committed to buying with pickup date of Thursday. He has already rolled the BP multiple times so it is probably a done deal. If that falls through for any reason, I’ll be in touch. Thanks for your interest.

    That sounded way better than 'paddlesores is quite wide and didn't suit the BP'. :D
    It was really disappointing that it was a little too tight for me. It's a fantastic looking kayak and whoever does end up with it will be a lucky individual.
    It was great to meet up with you again Doug spend some time talking kayaks. I appreciate you holding onto it until I had a chance to try it out. Take care and hope to see you on the water some time.
    Doug
