    The Tesla is an excellent 'all purpose' kayak : It has enough stowage capacity to support multi-week trips but is versatile enough for day paddles.
    Kevlar construction means it's lighter in weight but still tough. You'll appreciate the difference when carrying the kayak or loading it on the vehicle.

    This is an older boat which was in storage for 10+ years, unused, until recently.

    There are lots of small 'cosmetic' scuffs and scratches, so it's not in 'mint condition' but there are no repairs needed. Well-built Kevlar boats need to have thin gelcoat, so scuffs are more visible than in a heavy layup boat.

    Recent upgrades:
    Worn area at stern keel was repaired with epoxy/fiberglass/silica.
    Some scratches and small chips in the gelcoat were repaired.
    Deck and hull were cleaned and polished.
    Foam bulkheads were removed, as they had shrunk and come loose from the hull.
    Aft bulkhead was re-fitted and reinstalled.
    A new Ethafoam front bulkhead was made and installed.
    New safety perimeter deck lines.
    New end toggles
    New deck shock cords
    New hatch webbing straps and buckles
    New ($150) Neoprene Hatch Covers from Snapdragon (USA)
    Rudder and sliding footpegs checked and rudder downhaul line fitted with shock cord to prevent collision damage.
    Replacement Keepers footpeg rails installed
    Pump/water bottle stowage beside seat in new foam inserts
    New foam thigh pads installed

    Equipment included with the kayak:
    New Brooks cockpit cover
    New Level Six 'Excursion' breathable sprayskirt with adjustable tunnel
    'Scotty' Pump
    Like new foam paddle float
    North Water tow line/tow belt (used)

    Price: $1200 CAD
