Kayakers' Alliance Message Board › Selling Necky Chatham 17 Polymer Sea Touring Kayak w/ Retractable Skeg

Selling Necky Chatham 17 Polymer Sea Touring Kayak w/ Retractable Skeg

A former member
Post #: 3
Necky Chatham 17 Polymer Sea Touring Kayak w/ Retractable Skeg bought new in 2009 from REI for $1000.
Retails for $1,749.00.

Along with the sea kayak I will throw in a Seals cockpit cover (retails $55) and a brand new Sea to Summit small cart (retails $100). No other gear included.

Website description:

“The Necky Chatham 17 Kayak is an ideal coastal explorer with great maneuverability and superb rough water performance. The full-chined hull minimizes windage while increasing stability despite its narrow width, enabling the paddler to maneuver outside their comfort zone. Tracking is improved in windy conditions by deploying the drop skeg enhancing paddling efficiency so you can stay out longer. Optimized for long-distance exploration and multi-day trips, the Chatham 17 truly excels at coastal exploration.”

Personal Product History:
Stored for 1.5 years in a garage and 1.5 years outside wrapped in a trap in a nearly constant shaded area.
Used only 2-3 times per year.
No leaks.
Retractable skeg works.
Cables/cords, thigh brace, seat, foot track in great condition/ work.
Color: Yellow.
There are cosmetic scratches on the haul from normal use and transport.
There is a dent near the stern hatch on the haul about a 1/4” long and 1/8” deep (doesn’t affect the structural integrity of haul, won’t puncture through, doesn’t leak).

I rarely use the kayak anymore and would like to see it go to a good home.

I will answer all questions and provide photos if requested.

Cash Only. $1000. No trades.

Pick up in south San Jose only. 
Make sure you have a way to transport the kayak (roof rack, trailer, van, etc.).
In the past I used a J bar roof rack system on a 2 door civic and a Sea to Summit removable soft roof rack on a prius.
