From time to time we receive reports of attempted scams related to classifieds posts on the ConnYak website.
Often they involve fraudulent checks, including cashier's or bank checks, and rip-off transportation schemes.
Best practice is to transact sales on a cash only basis, with local pickup required (i.e. no shipping).
Be careful out there.
P&H Aries 150 in excellent condition
I am the original buyer and owner. Since I live 5 hours from saltwater this Aries has seen low mileage and very light use.� Horrors, it has some light hull scratches and neoprene heel marks in the cockpit otherwise it looks new.�
Lay-up: P&H Expedition with Kevlar keel strip.� This is P&H's most durable build.
Yakima footpegs, not the plastic ones.� Mounts for the pegs are glassed-in ($125/upgrade)
Seat: P&H Connect.� I pulled the Connect pad, because I found it to be bulky and replaced it with a NSI PADZ seat pad.� I still have the Connect pad, which can be easily re-installed if that is one's preference.
Thigh braces: P&H Cetus MV style. These are laid into the coaming.� I much prefer these to the bolt-in plastic option.� Most instructors that order Aries go this route.
Problems? Absolutely none.� It's the best built boat I have owned or used.� That's not a trivial statement.�
This kayak will come with a 70P deck compass installed ($150) and North Water paddle pants ($30), spare paddle carrier on fore-deck.
Why selling?� I am ordering another Aries in P&H's new infused C/K lay-up.� I'm over 65 and I do not need the weight or durability of the Expedition construction.� �
I don't spend much time in rock gardens, but I love the Aries maneuverability and for a teaching platform.
Cost with compass and paddle pants $5,410.� Sale price: $3,495
The boat is currently on display at The River Connection in Hyde Park, NY (on the Hudson River), which should be a bit closer to most buyers than where I live.�

I'm new to the group since I just moved back to CT, went to one meeting.
I'm looking for a Stellar LV 14' or 15'. Needs to be LV since I'm on the smaller size. Used is better than new.
Thank you. I live in Milford.
