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.
With all my design I invest a lot of effort refining the design to get the combination of performance characteristics I desire. I combine engineering for performance with a careful eye towards the beauty of the overall shape. It is easy to make a boat look pretty if it is made of wood, I strive to create designs that will be beautiful on and off the water regardless of the material used to build them.
