 Four bulkheads: bow hold, front cockpit, centre hold, rear cockpit and stern hold, five water tight safety buoyancy pockets.

Each cockpit has a powerful 800 gph electric bilge pump and air switch.  After a self-rescue it takes only a couple of minutes to empty.

From full charge both pumps can run for over an hour.

 Lots of carrying capacity in the rear, front and centre hatches.

 The Horizon is built for true expedition and touring sea kayaking.

The deck has perimeter deck lines, bungy straps and many other tie down points. 

These are particularly useful for self rescue on the high seas.

Fittings are recessed and integrated into the deck.

 

Hatch covers are in excellent condition.

 

This boat has paddled the Great Barrier Reef at the Whitsundays, Bass Strait.

 

Flip up aluminium trailing rudder makes sailing easy to maintain a heading. 

This kayak can be steered without the rudder. 

The rudder can be set partially down for cruising.

Fully down works well in choppy seas and surf.

 

Foot pegs / rudder are adjustable.

 

Each cockpit has an under deck large adjustable net to carry on water needs and bungy straps on the hull between your legs for water bottle, flares (not included).

 

Flat Earth CZ100 sail ($440) is near new, quality reinforced real sail material, has storage cover and is 1 square metre.  We have sailed at 14 kph / 8 knots.

Sail may be partially furled/tied to the mast to reduce catch to two thirds. 

From the front cockpit the sail is easily raised or furled and stowed under a bungy.

 

There are bungies to stow one paddle.  One photo shows the paddle stowed.

Paddle is not included with the kayak but is for separate sale.

 

Stern has had fibre glass repair.

 

Includes:

 Mirage Kayak Buddy trolley, pulls apart to fit inside hatch.

 

Over $5100 of kayak and accessories. Sale price $2950.

Location near Parramatta, Sydney.

 

Selling because we have too many kayaks and not enough garage.

"At 37.5 lbs the first thing you'll notice about the ST is how light and easy it is to handle. Whether carrying the kayak on your shoulder or loading it on your car, it takes the chore out of getting to the water. On the water it handles like a longer kayak; moderately rockered, good stability, long waterline and a fine bow ensure the ST tracks well and give it a touring speed better than many longer kayaks.

Maybe you have a skeg playboat and need something suited to fast touring and trips or expeditions? Paddle something boring and predictable and feel like a spin in something exciting and sporty once in a while? Maybe you have one of those ugly plumb bow boats and want a craft with traditionally elegant lines? Or want a high-performance boat but on a tight budget?

Here's the boat for you. It's rare to find a Raider X in kevlar, which makes it stiff, light and bombproof. A storied boat, This one had the decks reinforced (underneath with additional glass) to give it extra chops for a Bass Strait crossing. It ate that up and took a number of other extreme weather outings (a couple of which are rather infamous) in its stride. Similarly it's got a beefed up rudder. Sail fittings and pump with airswitch are also included.

It's a well used and tested boat, and despite having recently replaced deck bungees and safety line, she is past winning beauty competitions. The hull's gelcoat repairs are scarcely invisible. But then it's $4000 cheaper than a new boat.

If you don't know the X it's discussed thoroughly (19 pages!) on the Sea Kayak Forum. It's known for its km gobbling performance; Andrew McAulay paddled a Raider X for years including on the superdirect crossing of Bass Strait and in Antarctica.

So, as your main boat or a second (third?) boat this is a great option at just $1200.
