Fiberglass Mariner Express kayak with sliding seat
- 16 foot length
- 22.5 inch beam
- neither rudder nor skeg, not needed for this hull design

This kayak was 'remodeled' by John Abercrombie in Victoria, BC. The Express originally had no hatches. John added bow, stern, and day hatches. He also added an extra paddle keeper at the bow and refinished the boat. Mariner remains famous for its hull design which does well even in rough seas without a rudder or skeg. Google on "Mariner Express kayak".

The Mariner Kayaks company was operated by the Broze Brothers who shut down in ~2006. They were quite successful, but tired of the business and went on to other things. These kayaks are cult classics and hard to find. I was in semi-rough water (but never extreme) and found this kayak to be very easy to handle, living up to its reputation, needing neither rudder nor skeg.

Included in the sale are
- a nearly new neoprene spray skirt
- a second sliding seat with a lower seat back
