Other Boat Designs sticky icon

Not all my designs fit neatly into one of my families of kayak designs, in fact I also design some boat which aren't kayaks at all! I put the same care and effort into these designs as I have into my families of kayak designs. These designs are the result of months of design work and are boats I have built and tested to be sure they work as I intended.

What to do with all of your spare strips ? I made a Yakima/Thule style roof box for my kayaking equipment and skis. I also made a spoiler. When I put my expedition single or guillomot beside it on the roof it should look great.

Charles Leach's Self-design

Using the knowledge gained building my two Guillemot designs, I set out to design and build a kayak for my Daughter. After many hours on the computer and a few month in my garage "Restless Wind" was completed. She's of the Swede hull form, 17'x19", recessed cockpit, and a low rear deck. I held the keel down a little farther to the rear than the Guillemot to tighten the tracking. The pic was launch day on Kingsley Lake in Florida.
