Musical Kayaks

Posted by Laszlo on May 13, 2005

Has anyone else noticed that a kayak can be a flute, at least during construction?

When I was preparing to put on the coaming spacers I was blowing some sawdust or something off the deck right up where the keyhole narrows. When I hit a particular spot at a particular angle, the whole kayak resonated with a really deep bass note. It was similar to one of those massive Andean pan pipes.

Unfortunately, once the coaming was on the effect went away.
