North Shore Polar sea kayak. This is a terrific, well cared for, boat in excellent condition.
If you are not familiar with the Polar (they’ve been around since 1982), it is a very well behaved boat, The Polar has very good initial stability and secondary stability. This is one of the few kayaks I have owned where the cockpit is equally comfortable for me (5'4") or my 5'10" husband. It is my favorite kayak for camping, as it swallows up gear, although you do not feel like you are paddling a big kayak due to the great cockpit design. These are very popular kayaks in other countries. I am not sure why Valley/North Shore never marketed it here. I've only seen a few around. The Polar's maneuverability, efficiency (speed) and low windage are a real nice blend of characteristics. It's a great kayak. CANNOT BE SHIPPED

QUESTION: No date on this ad. Is this kayak still for sale?
QUESTION: Hi Jane - is your Polar still for sale? If so, can you tell me what year it is? I happen to be looking at another Polar available at Charles River Canoe & Kayak and it looks pretty different from your model, not sure which is older or newer. Thanks much, Carson
ANSWER: I am not sure what year my polar was built. I do know the kayak at Charles River and I know it is a different model (I think older) and even though the pictures look good it is pretty beat up
