Used Kayak Advice

Hey All,

I'm new to kayaking but looking to pick up a second hand boat and have a few questions...

1) Generally, as a new kayaker, how much will I notice some oil canning?

2) I found a Jackson Karma which has what the seller is calling a "boof bump." I've attached the picture. Would this turn off other buyers? Is the longevity of this boat compromised by it? What would people regard as a fair price for this boat?

It depends on the condition of the rest of hull. How scraped up is it? Either way, you can find plenty of great boats in good condition for $400s as a beginner. Personally I would find something smaller.
