Yet Another Hairy Wish

Post by hairymick » Tue Nov 13, 2007 11:40 pm

A very sleek, touring kayak.

Similar hull design to the Okwata, 15' - 16' - max beam, 25" similar decks to Laker & Freedom with identical cockpit to the Laker.
Regards,
Mick

I've always wondered if he could be trusted. Ever since I met him and we paddled together for a couple of months on the Mississippi of Australia, he's been shifty eyed.

Ya jesssssst never know about these things, ehh? :lol:

:P :P

My canoes are on hold for a little while. Laker has re-invigorated my love of kayaks and while there is not one thing I would change to my Laker, ( it is perfect for what I want her for) There are allways times when something a little longer and sleeker would be nice - just for the joy of paddling.

To this end, I will be starting an Okwater build real soon. :D I have allways loved the lines of this boat and I just don't undrstand why no -one seems to have done a build yet.

After Okwater, (or during it) I will be talking to Matt about just such a boat :D .

Naah! We saw right through that glib exterior, and down into the heart of a solid guy. We've admired you as a rogue from the very start.

I've never been a big fan of the rounded deck. They look nice enough. Just not my cup of tea. I did the rounded deck on the Okwata as a custom design request.
