Small Boat Design

Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.

New Kayak *Pic*

Here is my newest fiberglass kayak. It is a smaller kayak 5m long and 0.55m wide. The kayak is designed as a touringkayak for 50-60kg paddlers. If you lock at the pick it is rather obvius that my weight is not between 50-60kg so the kayak more or less foll loaded you could maybee ad 10-20 kg extra but not more than that.

Personaly I like the low shearline (in the middle) the curved deck is very god for the contact with the kayak.

This kayak is designed to work without rudder or skegg and it tracks nicely. witch otherwise can be a problem for relative short kayaks
