This was boat was originally called the "Puffin" since it was designed for guiding clients out to Maine's Eastern Egg Rock to see puffins. The boat is extremely stable and easy to paddle. It's the 'Jack of all trades' in our lineup, and will handle everything from afternoon surf sessions to multi-day camping trips.
The longitudinal immediately below the sheer stops just behind the cockpit to provide a sharper edge in the stern for carving turns. A full bow keeps the boat from submerging into the backs of waves while running downwind and makes for a dryer ride when paddling into them. Although this boat has considerably more rocker than our other two boats, most of that is located in the forward sections which, combined with a well defined stern, helps minimize weather-cocking and makes the boat easy to maneuver.
We offer this design in both electronic plans or precut kits.
