Hi All...I'm a highly-experienced whitewater paddler looking to buy a reasonably high-performance sea kayak. At first I'll be using it primarily on large, flat inland rivers...but I would eventually love to get into ocean paddling.
My question is about finding good second-hand boats. After doing a bit of digging around online, it seems that nobody ever sells their good sea kayaks! (Unlike good whitewater boats, which are a dime a dozen on the used market.)
So I'm looking for recommendations for places to search for good second-hand boats. (I'm in West Virginia, by the way.)
I've tried the usual classified media---Craigslist, for example---but I never see anyone selling a serious touring kayak (just low-end recreational boats).

PS - Forgot to add: a plastic boat would be fine for me right now...though I'd happily consider a second-hand composite boat as well if it's in good shape.
