GUILLEMOT MYSTERY CEDAR STRIP WOOD
This is a Guillemot Mystery kayak.
This can be a strip built, cedar kayak with carbon Kevlar hybrid cloth on the inside
and “S” type fiberglass on the out of doors. This boat is extremely stiff and tough
as a result of the construction weighing in at about 30 lbs. It has an under stern
rudder with a tiller regulate like a K1. It has watertight bulkheads and fore
and aft access for storage. Comes with a custom fitted cover. The description from Guillemot says, “The foredeck
is high to provide a clean, dry and fast ride going into heavy chop on open
water. The deck ahead of the cockpit is cut away to allow efficient,
close-to-the-hull paddle strokes without hitting the boat. The cockpit is long
enough for paddlers to sit down with their knees up, free to move, allowing full leg
extension and torso rotation.
This design is strip built with
1/8″ thick strips on the deck and 3/16″ strip on the hull.”
There is a up to now repair in the
side shown in the photos. Differently the boat is in very good condition, 8 out of
10. Some scratches from use but nothing through the glass. Boat paddles well and is reasonably fast even in comparison to high end racing kayaks. Stability is good but would recommend for an intermediate to advanced paddler. Own a gorgeous cedar strip boat for the cost of a stitch and glue kayak.
