Does anybody know FC inflatable kayak made in early 2000

Post by kurty »

I own Java but found something different. My friend(Sales representative) told me it might sale at price $C 1700. And FC didn't produced many of them and it is hard to find any information.

I have the interest to purchase, but not without much information.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Your question is really not clear (or maybe I am dumb). You want to sell your Java and are asking for what would be a fair price? Or you're looking for information on another inflatable model?

When people talking about fc inflatable, most would think Java or other popular model. Someone is selling couple inflable which is not Java, which confused me at first.

Might be that fc produced less than couple hundred such kind of model. I just want to know the information. Couldn't find anywhere but my friend confirm it is rare model.

Feathercraft also made the Uno, the Gemini and the high performance Jetstream sit on top inflatable kayaks some time back

More details of these and other old Feathercraft models here - quite a history!

From your photo, I would say that it's a K-Light (or maybe a Kahuna) minus the frame. I don't believe Feathercraft made any inflatables back then and did not produce a true inflatable kayak until many years later when they came out with the Aironaut.

Thanks.
eBay has the items list as inflatable on sale. I did think about it as klight skin at first. Really confusing.

One of my friend, used to be FC Asian sales representative, told me he have sold 5 of inflatable FC. Even I sent him the link of EBay sale, he must have ignored my information. What he meant might be Aironaut.

I also own Klight. So the picture is more like of skin of KLight.

Hi, I have corresponded with the ebay seller and the auction is for K-Light Plus skins without frames. The seller inflated the sponsons and thought that the kayaks were therefore inflatables. Suggested that they rewrite their listing to be more clear. Hope this helps. Cheers, Randy
