    For sale, my Epic Endurance 18 kayak. $2500.

    "The Epic Touring Endurance is a high-performance kayak with hatches and bulkheads for extended trips. Designed by Greg Barton and Oscar Chalupsky, it’s 18 feet long and 21.5 inches wide and weighs 47 pounds. $2,495 with the SmartTrack rudder." - Canoe & Kayak

    The Endurance is the model Epic had before the 18X. In his blog entry about the 18X, Mark Sundin describes the Endurance as follows:

    "I remember seeing the first incarnation of the Epic 18X, the Endurance nearly 10 years ago at a club weekend & thinking, 'hey that's not a sea kayak!' The long waterline, seemingly rockerless profile, plumb racing bow & modern look evoked a racing design profile, not the rough water sea boat that I'd grown accustomed to as representing a sea kayak."

    It's a fast boat. As Mark said: "One thing unmistakable was the speed of the Endurance, the guy paddling it was smoking us, & he was no hot shot."

    You are welcome to try it. I bought it from a club member a year ago for $2500, and then put about $1K of improvements into it, all done professionally by Eoin.
