I know absolutely nothing about 16 foot, fiberglass, touring kayaks, and I'm not the most trusting individual in the world either.
But, the first thing that popped into my mind was someone on the phone, talking to someone in Indonesia; trying to get them to honor their warranty.
Or will the "local company" take care of all warranty issues, and exactly what experience does this "local company" have doing warranty repairs on Indonesian made kayaks.
What is the warranty?
Also wondered; where did these highly skilled Indonesians kayak builders gain their expertise in making fiberglass kayaks. Wonder what an Indonesian kayak maker's hourly wage is? Wonder if the company will be making kayaks 2 years from now?
If price sounds too good to be true; I'd considering taking Monty Python's advice, "Run away, run away"!
P.S. I know this for sure; there certainly are a lot of well known brands of used kayaks, in the "same price range", available in the pnet classifieds.
Many pnet paddlers would be able to comment on their specs, quality, warranty, handling, reliability. And some would probably be very close to where you live.
