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.
