According to the owner of the Nighthawk, it's been kept inside and had very little use as he decided kayaking wasn't for him (his wife's passion more than his). I'm going to look at it today. $1600 for the Nighthawk. Not sure what year it is.
The Merlin is at an asking price of $1300. Thought that was a little steep so I'd see if he would budge.
Thanks for your input, btw. Much appreciated.
