Damn you Jokina. If I get divorced in the next few weeks it will all be your fault.
Why I hear you ask?
Because of you and your ridiculous Hot Buys post I went up to Gosford (Kayak Direct Warehouse) this morning and bought the Phoenix Hurricane 140 http://hurricaneaquasports.com/kayaks/p ... 0.htmlthey
had on special. And I did it without telling the cheese and kisses didn't I.
Snuck out whilst she was at work like a mangey dog and secretly purchased something I know I shouldn't have.
I still can't believe it actually, as I'm not generally the impulsive type, but this is one very sexy piece of plastic, especially in that really seriously attractive metallic Papaya colour. Check this one out to see what I mean http://www.floridapaddlesports.net/Prod ... x_140.html
. When he confirmed it had indeed been reduced to a lousy $999 (a massive $800 less than it is selling for elsewhere) I was a goner.
At the normal price (around $1800) this is a seriously good alternative to the Barracuda (around $2400) so there was no reason to muck around. Thirty minutes later with a new trolley (my old scupper cart won't fit as this yak only has one scupper in the hull would you believe) and seat, all at a very keen price I might add, I was throwing it up onto the i30. And when I say throwing it I mean it, because I just couldn't believe how light this thing is. At 23 kg it's a lightweight compared to Cavendish, and it's only 5kg more than the Barracuda. No doubt after I've finished pimping it will be a tad more heavy, but none the less I'm starting from a significantly lower base.
Ten minutes after that I was back on the freeway making my way home; all the while furiously trying to figure out how to break the news to SWMBO. Best plan I came up with was to hide it under a tarp up the back yard until I get the courage to tell her about it. I just hope she doesn't find it in the mean time. Yeh I know I am a wimp, but what else could I do?
Does anyone have any good lines I could use? What would you have done?
