Walden Kayaks Update


In November 2004 we told you of a canoe made from recycled milk jugs. One month later were sadly informed you that Walden Kayaks had closed their doors. Now we bring good tidings. Marty Bloomberg has advised us that he purchased 100 of the Walden Kayaks and with former employees has made these available at wholesale, plus ten percent. He also has their paddles available. Email him for details. Marty also advises that Meyers Boat in Michigan purchased the Walden name and many of the moulds, so may be able to assist with parts for existing owners. (We don’t know however if Meyers will retain the recycled HDPE construction.) Thanks for the update Marty. [by WM]
