Re: low volume Hyb. Shear
Posted by Jim E on Nov 17, 2006
Compared to other CLC kayaks, the Shearwater has a lower sheer, and more highly arched deck, which is why the S&G version has a multi-panel deck. So the deck has quite a lot of volume to reduce, and Bob's scheme should work. For the foredeck, the limiting factor is the amount of knee-room you need, but the stern deck could go all the way to completely flat, like SOF boats, and the Arctic Hawk.
