That's a shot that shows the cockpit, spray skirt (Palm brand), compass, pump and skeg release. The kayak does have bulkheads. I don't know about leaking. The hull is pretty scratched up but everything looks solid and functional. The only real damage I saw is a small chip out of near the tail of the boat, thumb print size or less, as seen here:

I'd take the thing to a smaller high mountain reservoir, which is all I have to play in nearby and stay close to shore until I can keep from repeatedly going over. I really am a beginner but this Nordkapp would do the trips I want to do.

There's another used kayak in pristine condition being sold by the original owner for $1,600 and it's a well mannered 17' Caribou. Another good deal on a high quality fiberglass kayak. The Nordkapp is 1,100 less and right down the road from me. The Caribou would be a day's drive to go look at but I have high quality images and it really looks to be in flawless condition.

Decisions.
