CKS Push Pull Drag Trade In Event

Push Pull Or Drag Sale- March 19 - 28th

Bring any "sea worthy" kayak under 9 feet in length into CKS for a minimum of $150 store credit towards the purchase of a new kayak
  • "sea worthy" = no holes, no cracks, all essential parts of the boat's interior are present and functioning well (basically this means outfitting), all boat hardware is present and solidly attached (bolts, nuts, grab bars, etc.), no additional hardware had been drilled into the boat and the boat's structure has not been modified.

The store credit you receive during the Push Pull Drag event is good only towards the purchase of a new kayak and must be used on or before March 28th 2010.

CKS will have extended hours for the sale
March 19th- 21th and 26th-28th we'll be open from 9am to 5 pm.

Call 888.265.2925 EXT 2 for details.

Now how is it a push, pull, drag sale if it has to be "sea worthy"? Why is a repaired boat not "sea worthy"? This ad seems to be full of misnomers. Are there any government cash for clunkers subsidies involved?

KSC - the "Push Pull Drag" name is more a play on a concept rather that something to be taken literally. The idea behind the event is to give our customers an opportunity to trade-in older boats that might be a little outdated, but still in really good shape.

yourrealdad - we needed to put some parameters on this event and so "no cracks", welded or not, is something we're going to stand by. We will try to sell the boats we receive from this event for a small mark up - $25 to $50 tops - the ones that don't sell will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in Chaffee County. If you're interested in donating your cracked, but repaired boats directly to them we'd be happy to set you up with their contact info. Your donation is tax deductible.

If you have any additional questions about the Push Pull Drag Event or would like to discuss any other misnomers you feel exist please don't hesitate to call the shop (719-395-9206 is our direct line) and ask for Tiff or Avery. We're happy to chat details with you.

Not exactly Jennifer, but kayak houses would be sweet!

Habitat for Humanity still needs to raise about $40,000 before they can break ground on the new home being built in Salida. The boats we donate to them, in addition to some other kayaking gear, will be used in a raffle to raise money for the project. They have some other fundraisers in the works as well. Anyone interested in donating should contact H for H in Chaffee County.

Yes, Habitat for Humanity will be taking donated models and will sell them at a low cost. Proceeds to benefit a local BV Paddler, who is going to be recipient of the next There is going to be a Habitat house built here in Chaffee County. She is a single mom, paddler and great person, so a very cool way to give back if you have items that you think you can not sell, but you want them out of the landfill and to help others get into paddling for a low cost. Here is their site.

Welcome to Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity
