I finally decided to buy a pakboat and called them. Their warehouse burned down in March and they lost everything. You could hear it in his voice. They may even be considering giving up. Their spring order did not arrive until after the fire, so they have some 16 and 17 foot boats, but they did not order any 15 ft boats because they had too many in stock. So those burned. All their boats, all their accessories. I was hoping for a 140, but apparently they are not making them anymore. And there will be no 150s until next spring.

I have been unable to find any outlets that still have a 140 or 150 (not a 150T) and I am disappointed.

But the real gut wrencher is another canoe maker suffering a tragedy and maybe going out of or at least curtailing business

not too surprised that you can't locate one - I bought mine thru Piragis, but it was drop shipped direct from pakboats. that's likely how most dealers work -i.e. not having any stock on hand.

being curious, I just looked at their website - seems they have a 160 on hand, lightly used demo at 15% off - might be worth considering
