Debbie posted a wanted ad on the Bucerias Yahoo Group that we were looking for a Ocean Kayak Malibu Two model for "coconuts". We got one response from a gentleman named Jim who had one for sale for "coconuts". We started negotiations and made a deal - as it seemed fair enough. It comes with paddles, seats, vests and plugs.
In Mexico, around Puerto Vallarta area, Zaragoza Chandlery is the only dealer for Ocean Kayaks.
'I cannot tell the age of your kayak by looking at it, but we can tell how old it is by looking at the serial number. The serial number should be along the outside of the kayak, along the waterline and on the right-hand side of the boat. Check towards the very back, stern end. It should stamped or hand-etched directly into the hull material and it will begin with an XKA or XTC. The figures stamped in the hull should be about the size of your fingernail or smaller.
Debbie will make a cover for the Ocean Kayak Malibu Two so it will be out of the sun for periods of non-use, like some of the hot summer months possibly.
Ronnie and Tony, our friends that we house sit for and will again shortly, are going to store the Ocean Kayak Malibu Two kayak in their yard for us til we get there. We are still anchored in Barra-Bahia de Navidad lagoon and did all this with email and Mexican cell phone. Final coconuts were handled through Paypal since we are "out of town" and so we would have a record. He will delver to Ronnie and Tony, who also live in Bucerias, Mexico.
