All winter long Confluence Water Sports, the parent of Wilderness Systems, Perception, Dagger and Wave Sport Kayaks, along with Mad River Canoes has been making boats in preparation for the spring and summer season. Every once in a while one gets scratched or dinged and it gets set aside. Some of them are almost perfect, so instead of fixing or recycling they gave us the opportunity to buy the better ones at a discount. The flaw is always cosmetic and never structural and the boats still have the complete manufacturer’s warranty. Stop by Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th, 2015.  To learn more click here!
