Build this kayak if you are in an experimental mode. This is one of
known kayaks of this type in the world. Among its unusual characteristics
reverse bottom (see side profile) and an extra strengthening gunwale. The
original was built as an inland hunting kayak (one of the double-bladed
ends has a spear incorporated) so this kayak is likely to be fast
and easily tipped.
