Re: Do I need a kayak?
Posted by RogerJ on Oct 10, 2005
James, I am currently building a decked sailing canoe. A Selway-Fisher design called a 50/50. The gentleman who contracted for this design with Paul Fisher did a number of river trips near his home in Great Britain. I believe he found sleeping on board difficult and much preferred a "dry land" camp. The 50/50 has a beam of 34+ inches and is 15 feet long, the cockpit is by kayak standards huge. There are plans for lots of craft a lot more stable for "camping" on board. RogerJ
