$3199 ACK list for a new little pedal boat
On the other side of that, some of the new paddle kayaks cost nearly as much as a peddle kayak.
Really? which one costs $3.5K OTD?
My comment is to bring to light that the prices of these new toys are ridiculous for what you get.
Key word was nearly!
The new ATAK is just shy of $1800 just for the kayak, and that isn't including accessories, paddle etc. so you can easily be looking at over 2K.
So I guess nearly is subjective, but if you are going to spend that much for a paddle kayak, there are paddle kayaks that are cheaper that can do the same thing, so why stop there?
Personally I'd go with the $3,000+ kayak and not look back!
So basically I'm agreeing with you!
