Hello all, my father and I need a little help, and having a WB subscription for as long as I've been alive, this seems like the place. Back in the sixties, he built two 12' kayaks with his brother. My mom has decided that 20years hanging from the ceiling of the garage is long enough, and they need to go. As far as I know, they're in great shape, watertight and true... painted a dark blue and have been kept dry, they should be perfectly seaworthy.
The problem is, what do we do with them? He thought about a local church group, but the first kid who used one would put a hole in it. Does anybody live in or know someone who lives in San Diego who could take a look at these boats and recommend a course of action? He though Craigslist or the Reader maybe... but I think they should go to an enthusiast or a musuem. I think he'd be happy if he knew they'd just be taken care of and make someone else happy.
Let me know if you have any ideas... or if you're knowledgeable and would like to take a look at them just to see if it's worth passing them on. They're in east Chula Vista in San Diego county.
Thanks for your help or suggestions.
PS, I tried my best not to sound like a classified. We really are stumped about what to do with these. They've have been hanging(literally) around for about 20 years. It's time the went to somebody who can use them. He might even give them away if the cause was worthy. I'm a Navy Pilot living in Virginia doing this as a favor to my dad who hasn't embraced internet forums yet. Thanks again for your help!
