Salem Boat Demo

July 9, 2016, 12:00pm - July 9, 2016, 2:00pm

Is there a kayak you've been looking at, but just aren't sure if it's the right boat for you? Or, are there a couple of kayaks you've had your eye on, but can't decide between the two? Or, maybe you've thought about trying kayaking for the first time and would like to get a feel for a boat and maybe talk to someone knowledgable who can help you choose the right boat for what you want to do? Well, any of these are good enough reasons to come out and join us for our free boat demo at Salem Rotary Park, located near Apperson Drive and Electric Road, on July 9th, from noon till 3 p.m. We will bring most of the boats we retail so all those who would like to see how the boats handle can try them out. Our expert staff will be present to answer all of your questions. We look forward to seeing you there! P.S. At this time, we are planning on demo'ing only kayaks, no standup paddle boards at this event.
