Re: S&G: Humpdeck (Room for Feet)

: I just finished building my new design, the Black Skimmer, a low
: volume Greenland style racer and roller. Having room in a low
: volume kayak for my size 12 feet has been an issue, so I worked
: out a deck design that turned out pretty good. I still have a
: low masik but room for my feet to be vertical and in the center,
: which really helps with the forward stroke. The cockpit is ocean
: style, so my knees are tucked forward of the cockpit rim. I'll
: take more photos and provide more info about the new design at a
: later date.

Hi Duane,
would humpback (whale) be a more appropriate name?
Cheers
