Re: Anybody build a Matun

I've built one but haven't paddled it yet. The shape is very close to a Mega, however. The bottom is a slight concave in the nose flattening out in the tail. The rocker is pretty much the same in both boats. I decided not to put fins on as the rails are hard and should give good control. Final weight is around 23 pounds which is close to the composite boats. The Matunuk is much nicer looking, however! Should be as durable as well since it's got 4 oz cloth inside and out. It's also an interesting boat to build.
