15’ Malibu Kayak. Comes with a seat, bait tank plumbed, fish finder (not sure mfg.) plumbed, crate and some accessories.

Can someone give me an idea how much its worth?

Thanks

$5-600. Check BWE for all things kayak fishing...and classified. Hopefully this doesn't violate some bdoutdoors rule thing.

Is there a through hole for the bait tank? Is the bait tank a bag? Have not seen that but it might scare someone like me away.... pumping water into the hull is a no-no for me. And you can pick these up pretty cheap a couple times a year from OEX or the factory. $500 is the max I would guess but I am a hobie guy and I dont really know.

Havent seen it in person but it does look like there is a ‘thru hull’ mount for both the bait tank (unk if a bag or what. Ill find out) and fish finder

Thru hull bait pumps are great. They have been used for 20 yearsw on kayaks. Long before peddle yaks were invented.
The one thing that connection needs is a back plate between the hull and the nut. My extreme filled a rear hatch bait tank with a thru hull pump. Was great.

Thru hull transducers are also great on yaks.

I understand people do it... but it can potentially end up being a bad thing.
Boats can fill with water anytime, doesn't take long, especially if its pumped in. Beach landings could be tricky too depending on the setup

Yeah, understood. Our group has been yaking with thru hulls for decades without incident. Our yaks have 1000's of miles up and down the baja peninsula. We do however, assemble the with a backing plate. We also change the fitting as needed.


Actually the most dangerous component is the scupper itself. It take a lot more stress the a thru hull connection. Just saying.

I had a thru-hull bait pump on my kayak, as well as a thru-hull transducer. I did the install myself, so I knew what/where to keep an eye on things. Zero issues with leaks, or beach launching/landing. Awesome set-up.

I’ve also used a thru Hull x ducer and pump, it was sealed with 5200 , never had any issues, Heck I use to get water coming in from the front hatch coming in/ out of the surf zone...
