Used Werner Paddles for Sale near Seattle, Washington

Our Werner paddles are made locally and considered by experts to be the best paddles in the world. The Skagit and Camano models are only available in 240cm for tandem and triple kayaks. Both are two-piece and can be used unfeathered or feathered either right or left. The Skagit can be set at any angle while the Camano is limited to the standard 60 degrees or straight. We also have Cannon Nokomis paddles at either 240cm or 220cm, the latter recommended only for narrow high-performance solo kayaks such as those we use at Sea Quest. They can be feathered at 60 degrees or used straight.  Nokomis and Skagit paddles have injection-molded nylon blades that are extremely light and incredibly durable. The Camano has heavier fiberglass composite blades and were originally Werner’s premium model before they introduced graphite. If you require detailed specs on these used paddles for sale, please visit the Werner or Cannon Paddle websites.

Our paddles have been used from a few days to several seasons and can be purchased as part of the gear package described on the used kayak pages or ala carte. Ala carte prices: Werner Skagit or Cannon Nokomis $99, Werner Camano $149. Gear packages can be upgraded to Camano for an extra $50.

Used Snap Dragon Spray Skirts for Sale in the San Juan Islands

Our spray skirts are mostly locally-made by Snap Dragon, another high quality kayak equipment manufacturer. The Outfitter Deluxe model is made of super durable vinyl, the same as many dry bags and truck tarps, and are favored by guides and expeditions. Their resistance to cuts and punctures make them ideal for crabbing and fishing when hooks, knives or spines would damage ordinary skirts. We also have nylon Synthesis skirts from Harmony that average paddlers prefer due to their lighter weight, greater comfort, extra features such as pockets and lashings, and more stylish appearance. Kayakers that expect to paddle in rough waters usually prefer neoprene skirts as they are more watertight when getting pounded by waves or rolling. We have a variety of neoprene brands and models in different sizes. Whereas vinyl and nylon skirts are highly adjustable (typically one size fits all) the sizing of neoprene skirts is specific to both cockpit and waist measurements. Our neoprene skirts are only available for large cockpits and paddler waists from medium to extra large. Recently, we added some that have adjustable waists.

Our skirts have been used from a few days to several seasons and can be purchased as part of the gear package described on the used kayak pages or ala carte. Ala carte spray skirt prices: Outfitter Deluxe $49 to $59, Synthesis $49, neoprene models range from $49 to $99.
