Anyone selling a WW kayak in NC?

Looking to get into whitewater kayaking, so I am looking for a nicely used ww kayak. In the ad section most guys are from mid country. I'm trying to find someone in North Carolina or near by.

Thanks

Used Riot Magnum 72 For Sale

Even though this is an older boat I still use the Magnum 72. For example, I'll be paddling it today on the Upper Gauley.

This may be a good boat for you depending on your size. I weigh 160-ish. it's a midsize boat. If you big big guy then this is not the boat for you.

This kayak is easy to roll and I have given a handful of folks roll and beginner lessons in it. It is high performance creeking. It has good stability cruising through rapids and you can take this boat from intermediate level to as high as you want to go in the creeking game. It's simply a good design. I've used it as my choice kayak on the Green Narrows in NC; lots of stuff in CO and Chile; in WV Manns, Meadow, Gauley, Upper Yough (MD)...

The boat hull is in good condition with no damages and a strong integrity hull. I lost the drain plug years ago and now use a foam cork. I've never been that crazy about the outfitting. The back band slipped from the day I got it and this was a problem with many Magnums. Like many others instead of using the cam system that slips I tied off the backband webbing to a fixed seat position. So, now you have a customized kayak.

I am not certain what the used kayak market is here. Off the top of my head considering a new kayak is $1100 I think a good condition Magnum is worth $450.

I plan to drive 85 south to 40 east at Salem juncture toward the Raleigh Durham area on Monday or Tuesday to visit family. Let me know if you want to see photos or are interested. Hopefully, you live somewhere close to these areas.

You may want to check the "Gear Swap" section at boatertalk.com. East coast boaters sell gear there.
