Hello All,
I need to survey the dealers for the potential for an accessory for this kayak that I might sell. I've contacted Hobie Cat for a list--they cannot provide one for proprietary reasons. I know about the "find a dealer" webpage. I would need to search by every city by state or by zip code. I don't know every city in the U.S. I could also search by zipcode. According to one datasource I've downloaded, there are 42,726 zip codes in the U.S. territories. That's a lot of entries. I would like the dealer name, phone number, or preferably an email address.

Anyone want to help?

Thanks in advance.

A clarification- I'm a start-up manufacturer. I'm if there's a demand for this product (an accessory), then I might produce it. If the survey shows that there is no demand or limited demand, then I will not produce it.

Thanks for your response.

your going to have a hard time getting everyones contact info other than dealer finder.

these forums would be a great place to get a pulse for the demand. I'd say make it and sell it on your own to gain traction then approach Hobie and their dealers about selling it.
