As I think about it, I have a wood strip solo boat, a J Winters designed Kite, that I rarely use.
You’re certainly welcome to try it out to see if that sort of hull suits you. It’s a comfortable, maneuverable, seaworthy hull that’s not the fastest, but fast enough.
let me know if you’d like to try it out, I’m in the town of Colonie in the capital district.
Stripper - just took a look at them on the Green Valley site, sweet looking boat. What does it weigh? I'm looking for light as possible as I have 2 heavy kayaks that aren't fun to load on the car. Will keep you in mind during my search and appreciate the offer. We're in Chatham when not in Westport so in your area. Thanks again
