Racing Kayak (20 Feet)
This beautiful racing kayak has been built to specs and is capable of racing pace. It tracks fast and straight and is barely affected by wind. The cockpit sits low to provide stability and is also large enough for paddlers to sit comfortably with their knees up or stretched out. This racing kayak is good for both average and experience paddlers to use on lakes, rivers, and open water. This racing kayak is completely handcrafted; it typically takes about 500 hours to build one. Traditional methods of construction are used while integrating the highest quality of materials currently available. Strips of cedar are joined together by hand and encapsulated in fiberglass bonded in place with epoxy resin then coated with marine vanish. This combination of fiberglass and epoxy is very strong and completely transparent so the beauty of the wood will be protected for generations.
About Woodenboat USA™:
For years, professional canoe guides and outfitters have relied on plastic or fiberglass for their fleets of boats. Each of them has its own merit. One is inexpensive, the other light. But none of them has the beautiful look. The team at Woodenboat USA™ are determined to make something stunningly beautiful and at the same time strong, durable and light weight. How do they achieve all this? All canoes/kayaks are assembled from strips of top grade Canadian cedar (a very rare soft yet very strong timber) and then encapsulated in fiberglass with epoxy resin.
