"Silver"

This cedar strip wood kayak  was designed in response to  a request from a customer  who desired "... a narrow wood kayak that is between 16 and 17 feet long and with a slightly lower deck than the Spring Run."

"The Silver" was designed along similar lines of the Return; however,  in addition to slightly narrowing the beam, we also redesigned the deck -- allowing a greater range of upper body movement for a paddler of smaller stature.

The slight rocker incorporated into the fore section of the hull ensures great maneuverability, and the deeper keel line aft contributes to  effortless tracking -- no need for a rudder here!

"The Silver" is a superb cedar strip wood kayak and fills the performance niche that existed between the Spring Run and the Return. It is a beautiful boat and an exciting addition to our growing family of wooden sea kayaks!
