Re: Looking for Orca's maker - Waiheke Island NZ

Your Orca looks exactly like a WR18 or West River 180 from Chesapeake Lightcraft - a multichined racing/touring kayak about 18' long and 22" wide. I have the WR180 and its converted pretty well to a sailing kayak. Its initial stability is very low but its fast. The sailrig irons out the tracking and stability issues to a great degree.
