British Heavy

Posted by Mac on Aug 3, 2004

I come to the mountain with yet another grasshopper question:

I've read countless descriptions of kayaks which compare their handling characteristics to those of a British Heavy. It seems to do with straight tracking above all else. Does this mean that these craft have little to no rocker and must be leaned or swept radically for turns? Would most of these kayaks be outfitted with a rudder?

It also appers to me that most of these boats are multi-chined as well.

Thank's all, and have a good one.
