Custom-Ordered Boats and other New Boat Purchases
COVID-19’s first wave hit just as your and our new set of NDKs were unloaded from our pre-season container and stashed either on Peaks or in MIKCo’s Portland warehouse. FYI, all boats we ordered were received, with no apparent shipping damage, and all sit in dry, protected storage until we get your new boat(s) to you.
While we’re all figuring out and adjusting to this Brave New World of reduced movement and ‘sheltering in place’, I have prepped and delivered a couple of our paddler’s custom-ordered brand new NDKs - in what I believe is likely a safe handling process. Below I’ve set out our suggested Covid-new-boat-prep-and-delivery process. If you are comfortable with this method of transfer, then let’s talk it out. I’m guessing that some of you hope to paddle before this COVID-19 pandemic ends sometime well into the summer. If you’re a buyer of one of our new MIKCo in-stock retail boats, the same process applies.
