Sea kayak sold for £390 which is about £80 more than I paid for it in 2008 ;D

The chap collected it having driven down from Kent - he was full of enthusiasm but never paddled a proper kayak before (only a sit on top).

I suspect that he found it less stable and perhaps had a swim or two, because it is back on ebay less than a week after he collected it.

He should get more money than he paid me because there are more people in the South east, but whether it would cover the cost of his 510 mile round trip to collect it in a big Volvo estate, I wonder.

Update: I am surprised - he sold it for £5 less than he paid me for it despite being nearer the affluant south east! That makes me feel better ;D

It was oviously the correct price , selling twice for almost an identical sum, reenforcing your original bargain.  ;) Now about the commision  8)
