Kayaks are expensive. This much is true. Blemished boats are a way to save some money.
If you know a smidge about manufacturing, you know there are firsts, seconds, thirds, etc. Blemished boats are seconds. This means that they did not pass their first article inspection. A Jackson Kayak blemished boat is due to having a visual discrepancy, never a structural discrepancy. Nothing about the boat will paddle any different than a brand new first article boat. However, it may have part of a decal missing, a nonstructural scratch, a gray seat installed, etc.
