My local shop wants to charge me $28 for half a day or $38 for the full day to demo a boat. They weren't clear if I'm going to have to also pay for a demo skirt if my skirt doesn't fit the keyhole of the demo boat. They're willing to put the cost towards a new boat for up to three demos, but this still seemed a bit steep. Is it typical to charge this much for a demo?

Linsey,
Confluence Kayaks in Denver charges $25 for a full day and $15 for a half day, and they do charge to rent extra equipment. Alpenglow (Golden) and Golden River Sports also have demos, but I don't know how much they charge. If you just want to take it on a quick trip down the Clear Creek WW Park they might not even charge you.

See you at the BTO! Drew

Linsey they must already be charging you for the skirt if you let them know that you needed one. I've only ever demoed for for a full day, and it was always $34. I got the boat only (float bags too, but they are free).

Also, look into this, but I'd recommend only demoing for a 1/2 day if you think that there is any chance that you will be done by 4 PM. On my last demo I only used the boat for the 1/2 day time, but since I had asked for a full day I had to pay for it. It wasn't very cool in my opinion, but it was their policy.
