I am looking at the sea ghost and since i don’t have a dealer anywhere close (10 hrs min) away. It seems the factory is out of them. Is there any other online dealers that have them? I am just weighing my options and that yak is at the top of my budget so I need to make sure it’s a good one.

I just received mine about 2 weeks ago . Hasn't even been in the water yet . It took mine about a month to be delivered . Very happy with the purchase .

I ordered it through my local dealer . But , they are very prompt at answering emails when I have contacted them with questions . I would ask if you could get some type of local delivery . I believe I've read in their blog that customers have had Kayaks delivered to their home address , but you have to sign and receive it in person . Could be tough if there is any scheduling conflicts .

They do offer home delivery but you must inspect it and sign the freight release BEFORE the driver leaves.

This means you or someone that is capable of inspecting it for damage must unloaded, unpackage, and inspect fairly quickly so there isn’t a “long delivery” charge for holding the driver up. I never heard of this surcharge until I had my smoker delivered and the driver informed me of it. I believe he told me it was 15 or 20 minutes for a residential delivery, so it isn’t unreasonably short.

Thanks all. I just have to wait until they get some in stock. If I do order it I think I will ship it to my office. Someone is always there to unload it.

Something to think about: it's not really if someone is there to receive the boat, as far as YOUR interests go. It's more about having someone there to INSPECT the plastic boat before you give up the opportunity to complain later.

I would want to learn about what typically goes wrong in shipping. I would unwrap the boat completely and inspect the seams, the hull, the plastic latches, etc. There is probably no need to recreate the wheel. Someone probably has something written down somewhere that shows you what you want to inspect on your newly arrived boat.
