Considering a Kayak
« on: December 04, 2014, 06:52:32 PM »
I'm thinking of getting a fishing kayak and was wondering who the dealers are in NS.  Looking for something under 1K plus accessories.  Hoping to get something fully rigged for under 2K. 

I'm wide open when it comes to choices but the following are a must.

Under 12 feet but would like closer to 10 ft
weight under 75 pounds
It must have a great chair / seat that is comfortable and offers above average back support (this is the most important item for me)
As wide as possible
Designed for fishing not modified

I saw a nice one at BP that meets most of my needs but would prefer local if possible. 

Thanks and Best Fishes,  : fishing1 :

Kayak market is definitely a growing one!

Check with Dave as mentioned to see if he sells or just reps. Also, I think Better Buy sports on Windmill sells kayaks too.

Love the Old Town Predator 13 but it's a little slow and is tougher to paddle in high winds. Would still recommend it highly because it takes no effort to stand and paddle if not too windy.


Better get Maaco Hanley Marine - Nova Scotia's High Performance Dealer
