kids boat

Don't know if you're interested or not, but I have a Dagger GT 7.6 for sale. It's been wet less than 10 times and comes with a skirt and paddle. It's my wife's boat, but she never got hooked on boating. The lines are quite a bit more forgiving than a Jackson Fun and perfect for a small novice. My wife is petite, so the boat would work well for a child. $450 for all of it. Let me know if you're interested. Kenny (435) 260-2219.

Thanks Kenny - how wide is the GT 7.6? How long is the paddle? Are you quoting the price with flotation. I'm trying to get an array of small people's gear together since I run a kayak school (besides getting gear for my 2 yo). Shipping, as usual, is the issue, We live 250 miles from Anchorage, Alaska. So it depends on where you are as a starting point.

Vaya, Jackson boats, WS Fuse

My kids all loved the Fluid Vaya - but we live in the East where the rivers are warm so a sit on top works well.

My son started in a Jackson Shooting Star at 8 and he worked up to paddling class 4 by the end of his second summer. I bought him a Sidekick for running bigger water like the Lower Gauley and for doing class 3 creeking with his big bro's. The Shooting Star worked good as a river runner when he started - he has grown into as a playboat. His feet were too big for the Fun 1 so that is how we ended up with a shooting star.

The Fuses are nice boats too.

Like other sports better to spend the money on equipment that fits so that the child is successful right out of the gate.

Where would one buy the discounted Jackson kids boats? I didn't find them on CKS's site. I really want a sidekick for my son.

I think CKS stops listing them (sidekicks) when they're out of stock. I emailed them and they said I could order one, but it would take a while to arrive.
