My suggestion is to bring it to the gear swap at Paddlefest in Buena Vista in May. If it's in good shape keep the paddle, and list the kayak for $300. There will be quite a variety of boats in the 300-400 dollar range that you could pick up for little or no additional money..... it's important to be comfortable in your boat. My first kayak was too small for me and I was so uncomfortable I almost gave the sport up....
