Quetico

Post by rodot » Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:17 am

I've just finished all my household maintainance chores, including building a new front deck, and I'm up to date with all the "honey doos" and I've earnt lots of brownie points, so I am rearing and itching to start a new kayak build. Hows things going with the Quetico Matt? Really got my heart set on that one.

Cheers

This is a design I requested from Matt. A multichined kayak slimmer than my Okwata, sacrificing a little stability for paddling enjoyment. I think what Matt has come up with is really awesome and I cant wait to build it.

Beautiful isn't it Mick. Length 15'5, beam 23.25. 1.75" rocker front. 1" stern. This is exactly what I am looking for in a touring boat. Fast but stable enought to stop and take the odd photo or two and admire the beauty of nature. Easy to manhandle to the waterside. I am sure it will be a very capable vessel in all conditions.

Um.... don't you have some other Akuna to build?


:lol:

310 is about the most she should hold and still be expected to perform well.
