Default Pulled the trigger on a new yak

Went to Appomattox River Co.'s demo day Saturday. Had narrowed the choices down to five boats from three manufactuers. Paddled/pedaled three. The two from Jackson weren't available for demo. Shame on their factory reps! I bought a Hobie Outback. It was my initial inclination based on my research. The water time sealed it. They are shipping it to their Richmond store. I'll pick it up late this week. Pictures to come!

Great.

The 2019 outback is a little different than the older models. Great choice you will love it.

Outback is a great boat. Be sure you test the front hatch seal before going out. The earlier models had some issues, hobie added or changed the seal.

This is a 2019 boat so should be the new and improved. But I will check. Thanks for the tip.

the 2019 is the year model i am talking about. They changed them from 2018 and in the beginning they had seal issues, they have since corrected the issue. It pays to check before your on the water.
