You would be surprised at what you can find on craigslist. This is however a bad time of year to purchase a used kayak. Wait until fall/winter if possible and you never know what you'll stumble across. The key is checking daily because the sell fast.He told me that he is looking for a 12ft sit on for 400.00 because he had a lot to load on it. I am not sure I can find one at that price.
