Georgian Bay© is the perfect sea kayak for paddlers who want a boat for fishing, photography or nature observations and is also great for the novice. The hull is a shallow-arch design with ample volume carried toward the ends to produce a kayak with high initial stability. The hull flares above the waterline to provide good secondary stability. The rocker incorporated into this design, along with it's shorter length, make it an easy turning sea kayak. The Georgian Bay is a kayak that everyone can feel comfortable in and enjoy, from novice to expert paddler.
Georgian Bay is 23" at the waterline. This shallow arch hull produces high initial stability and a manoeuvrable kayak. This is a great sea kayak for close quarters such as salt marshes and river paddling. A design well suited to fishing and nature observation. The comfortable stability and easy handling of this kayak make a boat a novice can love and yet has the open water tracking and handling characteristics that the seasoned paddler will respect. A sea kayak classic!
The Georgian Bay has a low sheer line to shed wind. The vertical edge of the stern produces a long waterline/ faster hull and easily accommodates a rudder. Yet this kayak tracks so well you may not want one. High and low volume options are available. Georgian Bay has roomy, enclosed storage fore and aft. Access to storage is through hard-shell hatches which are water tight. The cockpit coaming is large for comfortable touring. Knees can be raised from the seated position.
