If you are going on a months-long tour up the Inside Passage you might want to carry a lot of supplies. This is the kayak to do it. It has the capacity to carry a large load efficiently. It is stable enough to be rigged with a small sail.

This boat may not be appropriate if you feel you just need a little bit more capacity than normal, it is best suited for situations where you need a total capacity over 350 lbs. and will still perform well with over 600 lbs on board.

If you're a big paddler, you will find this design efficient and comfortable while still able to carry a lot of gear.

Our strip-built and hybrid kits ship with 50% Western Red and 50% Alaskan Yellow cedar bead & cove strips. Photos on our website and printed materials may show patterns and accent strips with walnut or other materials. Optional walnut strips are available and can be shipped with kit orders
