A West Greenland Style Kayak
Northern Light is a Southwestern Greenland type wooden kayak built with a hybrid marine plywood hull and wood strip deck. This boat is based on a traditional kayak design from Southwest Greenland. It has straighter sides than the Bluefin and a bit flatter "V" bottom. The slight rocker allows this boat to turn easily. It tracks well in flat water, though dropping the skeg is often required in a following sea. Being narrower than the Bluefin, the Northern Light has higher hull speed, though its stability is not much less, given the flatter bottom.
A comparitively low volume kayak, the Northern Light is a great boat for an intermediate paddler, with enough room for camping gear. Hatches are cut out of the strip deck hiding the water-tight neoprene hatch cover underneath. A roomy cockpit allows for easy entry and egress.
Comes with a form-fitted foam seat and a foam covered wooden back rest. "Keepers" footrests are standard, as are wooden toggles through the bow and stern. Compass and retractable skeg are options (the skeg is recommended).
