On one of our recent not-so-typical gorgeous winter days here in the Northwest, Matthew Ross of seakayakshop.com in Anacortes joined Ruby Creek for a demo of the first Comet off the first container shipped from Emotion Kayaks. A sweet, fun little boat for just $279 MSRP. The blowmolded shell is light weight and really durable; there's a float bag in the stern for emergency buoyancy; deck bungees including a paddle-park next to the cockpit; and adjustable footbraces so everyone from the kids to the tall old man (speaking strictly for myself here) can jump in and have a great time.
The Comet is available from any of your favorite Emotion Kayaks dealers, including:
Boston Harbor Marina in Olympia
Ship to Shore Marine in Gig Harbor
Olympic Raft & Kayak in Port Angeles
Popeye's Marine in Everett
LFS Marine & Outdoor in Bellingham
...and of course, Matthew's own seakayakshop.com right here on Commercial Avenue in Anacortes. Thanks Matthew for coming out to paddle the new guy!
Happypaddlin.com shows some very cool video of how well the Comet performs in moving water, as Ethan took the prototype for a spin last Fall. Take a look… then get on the water in the new Comet!
Matthew and I, both "larger men", still fit comfortably in this little boat, ready for...
...another beautiful day of paddling on our Salish Sea!
