Industry Updates 

A container of 2021 Highfield Boats arrived November 16, and another one will be coming in March, 2021. With the January Chicago Boat Show canceled, our focus will be on solidifying all of our spring 2021 sales in November and December, so call us NOW to get best pricing and selection on new boats. Outboard engines are already in tight supply, and we expect that to continue through the 2021 summer season, so shopping this fall is to your advantage.

Werner Paddles, Northstar Canoe, and Eddyline kayaks have all informed their dealers that they are at production capacity, and no longer accepting orders for spring, 2021. Wenonah and Current Designs are booked up through May, and Wilderness Systems, Dagger, and Perception are likewise heavily booked for orders well into the new year.

The good news is that we already have 500+ canoes and kayaks on order for winter and spring delivery to us, and if you start shopping now, you should be able to get exactly the boat you want for next season.

Please contact us to find out what models in those lines are available to purchase and their ETA to the store, and to put down deposits if you want to hold boats/paddles on order.

 On behalf of everyone at Offshore / Paddling Warehouse, our best wishes for the safety of you and yours, and we look forward to seeing you in our Lake Bluff store when conditions allow.
