Fiberglass Kayak Inspection

Where can I get my 10 year old Wilderness System fiberglass kayak inspected? It’s been stored inside and had no major collisions with rocks .

Thank you.

Hi @Luther - Thanks for reaching out!

We do not currently offer kayak inspection services at REI. If you let us know where you are located, we'd be happy to research if there are any businesses that offer inspections in your area.

You may also consider contacting a local watercraft-specific retailer to see if they have suggestions to pass along.

Hopefully this helps!

@Luther - Thanks for the quick response!

You can try reaching out to Belle Haven Marina. Their phone number is 703-768-0018.

Let us know if you have any additional questions and we'll be happy to help!

I’ll reach out to them. Thank you

Hi @Luther - the US Coast Guard Auxiliary also does free vessel safety checks. You can fill out a form online and they'll put you in touch with a few volunteers who can help.
