Tandem Sit-on-Top

I know I raised this some time ago, but I have yet to find a 2 person ( me@80kg & wife @60kg) sot kayak design.Needs to be plenty stable & outright speed is of no concern.

I just bet that Hairymick,that gentleman of the north of our little island,has secretly whispered his thoughts along these lines to JEM & am wondering if this has sparked any ideas.

While we are both(wife & I) retired old farts,we are still pretty fit & the suggestion of maybe an outrigger would not upset us.

There is a strong outrigger kayak club near us that race regularly in their slim(plastic) craft & the sport is growing strongly. we do not intend to join them but are impressed with the performance of their boats.

Any ideas?

All the pictures in that thread are saved to a different site so it's not a setting I have.

They show up fine on my end.

G'day Al and Lee,

I am having the same problem this end. Scott may have cleaned up his pic hosting pages or something. I wouldn't know.

I will tell you this though, Both his build and his boat impressed the heck out of me. It is a very good looking, tandem SOT specifically designed for Scott and for fishing and carrying big pay-loads and is easily, the best looking SOT, hand made or store bought, that I have ever seen.

If I ever get the desire to own or to build a tandem SOT. This boat would do me just fine.

that's really weird.

I'll see if I can do something about it.

Any pictures that Scott posted in his thread no longer show up for me. Pictures in his thread posted by others still show up. So, it is happening on this side of the equator also.

I think he may have moved or deleted them from where he had them stored. If I right click on the box, that was his picture, and do properties, then copy/paste that address in my address bar, I get an error message when it tries to find it.
