I can feel your enthusiasm from here. Makes me smile. Looks like a very nice boat. I stood in one at a trade show, but haven't paddled one yet. Remind me what color did you get?

What I am really interested in hearing is about the shallow water capabilities of the boat. How skinny of water can you get in? Those pontoon looking sides look crazy stable, but wondering how much water it drafts.

"Cool Hand Blue". I'm pretty enthused haha! I'm thinking that it should be able to go over pretty shallow water from the design of the hull. But will know after some time is spent in it.

Not so good news. Kayak arrived not so fresh. Must have been damaged during shipping. Gouges and scrapes in multiple areas. Few bad ones on the forward part of the keel. Have a email in to customer relations. Waiting for a response. sick

Disappointing, yes. But the other "good" bad news....it will look like that anyway after a while. if they don't leak, I would not sweat it.
Your officially in the Kayak club now smile

I'm not sure what I'd do. I would lean toward sending it back unless at least some cash concession is made. Not sure.

I know some of the shippers are totally insensitive to cartons and boxes labeled very clearly with all sorts of warnings. I have bad dreams any time I have picked up or shipped via YRC. Dear Lord!

Funny story about my leaking Cuda LT. Just before I dropped it off at YRC (where Jackson told me to take it), I thought, hmm?, I think I will take some photos of the condition I shipped it in. Glad I did. When it arrived at Jackson, it had a significant gouge in the side where someone had apparently jammed a forklift blade into it.

It made sending it back for "testing" moot for both me and Jackson. My guess is YRC's insurance paid Jackson and this is how I ended up with a Big Rig.

And, yes, I "sweated" getting my Big Rig shipped to me via YRC. But, it showed up without a scratch on it.

Pic below that Jackson sent to me.

All the damage is purely cosmetic as far as I can tell. ACK gave me $150 in store credit so they are good by me. Timbertoes, I wasnt going to let a couple of scars on it keep me from getting out. Just kinda sad that I wasn't the one to put those battle scars on it! So i think an anchor wizard is coming my way lol. Brad, that's insane. Jacob, the customer relations guy I spoke to, said that he sees at least 1 kayak a day that's had forks through them. Absolutely ridiculous.

Glad that they did something to make you happier. Have fun in the boat.

I am so disappointed with the shipping you got. I got my native kayak directly from the manufacturer and the packing was so good. I didn't even get a scratch.

But anyway, you will get a lot of scratch after using it.

I've been blamed for worse haha! I'm going to try and go float this bad girl Sunday. Was hoping for tomorrow but my brother in law turned 15 so we are getting together for that instead. Hopefully for some reason this Texas weather decides to turn to prime fishing conditions.
