Shorter length with that hull shape would be a nice looking boat
Anything is possible, it just takes money, hey Matt :-)

I'll try in here :? Could there be such a thing as a cobia 13?

Cheers John.


It could be done. Wouldn't have as much displacement so it would be for a smaller paddler.

Either,or. Kinda wanting to see one completed. :) A few ideas on how she might behave/handle. Beam? Capacity. But mostly a "Look" if you know what I mean. That kinda stuff.
Cheers John.

John,

I was originally building this one for my ex wife. A smaller persons Okwata. :D At 5'4" and about 115 pounds (55kgs) i thought it would have done her nicely as a sea kayak.

I think with someone of powerful stature like Jacko, this boat will bloody fly. I just lost interest in the build is all. Way too much other stuff going on at the time.

Hey Mick, 's all good. Not having a go just wondering how the finished article will present. Think there are more than one or two other people interested as well. At 5' 6" and 145lbs I reckon It would still be very adequate size wise for me. Mainly for fishing but also a bit of wandering around.
Mate of all the people on here you would be the last to have to explain yourself. Hmmm... although you are responsible for getting a whole heap of folk into this wood boat thing
:wink:
I just hope along with most other folk, things have settled down a bit for you and that you are able to do whatever rocks your boat
Cheers John.

G'day John,

No problem mate. Its all good. :D

I think the design is a winner but I just have way too much on my plate at the moment to even think about finishing her off. While the boat was being built for a smaller person, I think she will be very capable as a low volume, high performance kayak for someone up to around - perhaps 120 to 130kgs. Matt could enlighten us a bit more perhaps.
