SOT Fishing Kayak
The F1430 is a unique sit-on-top stitch and glue kayak. Combining stunning classic looks with modern wood-epoxy construction, this kayak will easily weight in at less than half of your typical roto-moulded fishing yak; And as we’re already realizing, once you’re on the water, you’ll catch not only fish but plenty of attention from fellow paddlers.
Deceptively simple to build, it boasts plenty of stability (enough for the designer to stand up for a selfie!), lots of storage with the possibility of converting one of the two watertight cockpit compartments to a live-bait well. Innovative cedar scuppers both in the cockpit and in the storage area. Fully watertight forward hatch will allow stowage of gear and extra cloths.
The design lends itself well to a conversion to various pedal drive systems, again by converting one of the two cockpit storages.
Aircraft-style lightening holes in the structure and optimization of unsupported panel sizes, paired with strategic carbon reinforcement yields a structure so light and strong that this boat will be a breeze to paddle and to get up to speed, even loaded up.
We will consider offering a completed boat. Contact us if this is a better option for you.
