Looking at buying one used for $200. Is that a good price? It comes with a paddle and lifejacket. Thanks in advance. This site never lets me down.

That's about the going rate, at least in my neck of the woods, for that sort of boat (short rec kayak). If it is in good condition and suits your purposes, for instance if you are just looking for a pond floater, guest boat or something for the kids to play with, it isn't a bad price. But if it isn't what you need then the $200 would be better spend saving towards a more appropriate or versatile boat. Nothing is a bargain if it doesn't suit what you want to do.

a plus if it does not fit you properly. Check that its not too big.. Otherwise $200 is probably a good price.

They're a great beginner boat, very stable, and you they take a beating.
Nice little boat. If it's "Polylink3", that's even nicer.
