I had to think of a clever name while I was building my stripper on the kayak building forum. I have worked with wood in one form or another most of my life and my last name is Nicol. I think that name will stick with me for quite awhile. I actually got out for the first paddle of the year today!!

Thumbs up Great thread!!

Hey wow what a great thread!! Those wooden boats look great!

Here's a few non wooden boats from up Michigan way, all taken on Lake MI at Wilderness State Park near Mackinaw City.



My dad (an Airstreamer in the past) taking my son (present Airstreamer) out in the kayak, a Storm by Current Designs, the kayak I learned in, great one for big water beginners like me...


hubby and son out on same bay (Cecil Bay at Wilderness) in a Pungo


All of us out on the bay, I'm in my dad's fiberglass sea kayak, he has a kayak collection! It was a nice boat, can't remember the brand. Still like the Storm best though as I don't have to worry about babying the fiberglass...

Cruising off Pt. Lobos on the Monterey Bay:
Being tandem bicyclists, we're interested in the pedal powered Hobie tandem Kayak such as yours. I notice in your photo the bow is higher than the stern presumably because of the weight difference between the two of you. This would be the case with us. So we're wondering about the affects to handling, shipping water, or any downsides.

Antique Pedaler,
We haven't noticed any issues with the our weight differences in the kayak at all. In fact I think that particular photo shows the bow up higher than usual because we were heading out over some swells.
We only take it out into the ocean when there are calm seas, and it's especially good for quiet rivers, lakes and estuaries. Neither of has gotten wet yet!
Have fun.

The higher bow splits the wave, the stern just follows the trough that the bow makes.
