G'day Gridjie,

Are you Ray?

Welcome aboard anyway mate. :D

The "T" stands for the Touring Pirogue with a Tumblehome panel and the V stands for a "V" bottom.

I think it is more of a hybrid. Not really a pirogue at all, not quite either a kayak or a canoe but hopefully will combine the best bits of all three. :D

Ie - allmost as easy to build as a normal pirogue, nearly as quick as a very good kayak only more stable - with similar, small wind signature and with the load capacity approaching that of a good solo canoe.

James Hager and myself both built the Laker and backchannel were talking about what we thought would make a fast stable low wind sigature boat, we came up with a modified touring peroque,Laker cross.
James contacted Matt and the T-V was born drew a set of plans then James had Matt send me a set.
It is a fantastic boat , the best in my stable, course I had to modify my decks ,but that is another story,
Look at t-v aka Brazos Queen shows my boat (aint as pretty as Micks) but it sure does what I wanted it to.
