Default Best Site to sell a Nigel Foster Silhouette Kayak?

I've got a somewhat rare for my area Nigel Foster Silhouette Kayak I'd like to sell.

I can't find any comps, paid a ton for it but need a more "guest friendly" recreational kayak.

Aside from Craigslist, where I should list it for sale in the Mid Atlantic?

Any suggestions on value would be appreciated as well.

Post it for sale here in the trading dock. Also give eBay a try and if you don't want to ship it set it for local pickup only.

I made the same move away from a high end sea kayak I bought up in BC years ago. Went to a Ocean kayak sit atop when I realized I could frolic with girls in a less "severe"boat. ended up marrying one of them, and now the kids are all over them.

Wish I had the boat back now though.

all that to say that I sold mine on eBay (set my reserve high) without a hitch. $1800 back in 1995

Thanks for info. It's a great yak. Really like the speed and directional stability. It's more of an enthusiast yak than I need. I'd trade for a nice paddle board like a Bote.

Will clean it up, wax and list it.

Does your state have a kayak group? Here in Connecticut, we have Connyak. That kind of kayak (very nice, by the way) would appeal to many members in a group like that.

Default Great sea kayak for the right sized paddler.

I would add MAPA mid Atlantic paddlers association, Carolina canoe club, and all your paddling friends on Facebook.

Those are great boats. I have something a little similar (a wilderness system Arctic Hawk). Nowadays, it seems most people stick with recreational boats. The dealers carry less "touring" kayaks and the manufacturers don't make as many different hull styles (often taking one hull form and making it in different sizes).
