Hand-crafted Kayak
This hand-crafted kayak is a display of 500 hours of master craftsmanship by Dick Crowder. The use of traditional methods of construction and integration of the highest quality materials currently available, makes this a unique and one-of-a-kind vessel. Strips of Western Ridge and Alaskan Cedar are joined together by hand and encapsulated in fiberglass, then coated with marine varnish. This combination is very strong, makes the kayak virtually unsinkable, and offers buoyancy from bow to stern. It is completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood will be protected for generations. The kayak features a stunning clear graded cedar hull, a light weight design so that one person can carry it, adjustable foot rest and seat, and comes with a show graded set of wooden paddles. If you are up a creek, down a lazy river, or sitting on the dock of the Bay, this one-of-a-kind kayak is truly an inspiration, so bid high and help us give Cancer the boot!
