I have absolutely no experience with folding kayaks, but am eyeing a 1993 Greenland II. The seller is asking $Ca 1200. Is this a decent price, and what should I look for when purchasing? There seems to be a dearth of second-hand folding kayaks around Southern Ontario, and I am interested in finding one for the summer if possible.

All advice is welcomed.

Thanks

I'd call that an okay price- if it's in excellent condition. Boats from that era still have the plastic frames and coaming, and I would definitely upgrade one to the new coaming, new seats, and maybe new frames as well. Makes it a much stiffer, much more responsive paddler.
