Large storage compartments will absorb enough gear and water for long, unsupported expeditions. Cockpits are large and easy to pad out for a custom fit. The big, comfortable cockpit is an ideal spot to spend a lazy afternoon if multi-week expeditions aren't your speed.

July 20-25: Clayton, NY
Sept 28-Oct 3: St. Michaels MD

Build this boat if:
