We have two short ones and they are good for messing around on flat water and thats about it. The third one is 12' and its still good for flat short paddles. Sooo the next ones we are going to invest in are going to be at least 14' long. And if we are sniffing paint fumes, mixing in some wine, hey lets talk about adding two more to the building list of getting the first kit yak down to costing nothing! Wait.. send him more fumes, maybe we can get him to add on to the garage to build more at once!

Hey Zep,
That kayak pictured at Lake Powell in your 10/11 post is a real stunner. Can you let a novice know what the make/model of that boat is? I already want one just from the picture. (sort of how I got my first airstream).
Thanks for any info you can pass along.
Tim

Thanks. I, too, was struck by the Tern the first time I saw one on the beach in Oregon. The full story of paddling Lake Powell is here.

It's an Arctic Tern 17 from Pygmy Boats. They're up in Port Townsend, WA. All their boats are kits. There are quite few blogs covering their construction, here's mine. You'll see a list of major construction steps in the pages listed down the right side of the pages.

The Tern is simple to build, compratatively speaking, since it only has one chine. It's odd that it performs better than the more attractive multi-chine Coho.

Only if it's got a large (and cool) wine rack...in which case you can qualify as a yak support ship.

Yeti's rock!!!!! ( you got a white one? mine's tan)
cold beer for a week on 4 lbs of dry ice at 90 degree F. ambient.
that North River floater is nice, and quite the trolling setup!!!

hey 3177 you should also check out Chesapeake Light Craft for nice yaks also, I'm a real fan of their boats.

New Launching

Here's Linda Lu's new Shearwater 14 LV.
It's a Modified Shearwater 14.
I lowered the deck 2" total length of the boat to suit her petite frame.
New LOA 13'8" and beam of 21 7/16", weight 36 lbs.
Still needs deck lines, we just had to float it early!!
Nothing like a cold one after a successful test flight...

View from my kayak looking at Skye in hers, on the Corpus Christi Bay. Very nice in the summer and winter but you have to get out there early before the wind picks up...
And a view from the door of "Bud" with the kayaks in their storage positions...
I need a rack for the truck so we can take them with us when we are 'Streamin.

Wow. The geometry of doing that isn't exactly linear! Nice work.

I'm glassing the deck my my new Double Osprey today. Should have the coamings on by Wednesday. woohoo

ZEP, put a sailing rig on that double and you'll have something!!

I've almost finished up my Night Heron, fabed up a carbon fibre combing and vacuum bagged it to the hull. looks nice . I'll post some pics in about 10 days, should have it complete by then, starting my Pax 20 race boat this week, going for a 3 peat this year at the triathalon...

I love your kayak

I have a wood Chesapeake 14' and I am thinking of building a larger one. I haven't decided on Pygmy or another Chesapeake. I hope to try one out in Port Townsend next time I'm in WA. Can you put a skeg on that?

Pygmy has two good looking boats ,the Pinguino 145 and the Borealis XL. there not in the same class but the Pinguino sounds "Hot".
As far as a skeg.It would depend on conditions and ability. Both say no, esp. for a short boat. My wife added one to her CLC 17LT. "After "it was made.We have hit conditions were my 17'Gulfstream w/skeg handled the conditions better than her boat w/o a skeg. We did a lot of research and found "Superior Kayaks" Inc.
Two Rivers ,Wi. The kit is incredible.Extremely High Quality. We were able to install it
thru the rear hatch opening.The location we used wasn't what CLC or Superior suggested,however the performance is "Good" and install was not that hard.
I'm looking at a Pygmy kit. We paddled some at there store and liked them.
However the CLC that my wife made was easy and the instructions are better than Pygmy's.
But for
Skeg ,contact " Superior Kayaks,Inc" 1-920-794-2500

Are these things commercially available? I am putting in a major mod--cheek storage compartments (at 30" wide, there's lots of side room). I had planned to be able to slide a mast and rolled up sail in one side.

Carbon coaming? Holy cow! I should have my first coaming on tomorrow. The coamings are one place where building the double obviously takes a bit more time. I don't have 40 clamps, so I have to do them one at a time.
