I am new to kayaking and would like to buy a used kayak to use at the lake. I have found Necky Kyook, Santa Cruz, and Alsek models as well as a Current Design Kestrel HV 120 in the $800-1000 range.
I know when I go to look at them, I need to check for scratches as well as warps in the hull.
Are there any other factors I need to consider? I will have to lug the kayak across the street to the water's edge each time I go out.
Thanks for your help!
