This high quality, completely handmade, light weight (only 50 lbs), Cedar Strip Wooden Hudson Kayak is brand new. The Kayak is manufactured by "Woodenboat USA" (formally Grande Canoes) a division of our fully assembled model ship & boats company OMH Inc. Woodenboat USA has more than 30 years of wood working experience and a passion for the water crafts they build. All Woodenboat USA Canoes & Kayaks come with a 1 year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
This beautiful Cedar Strip Surf Kayak is handcrafted from strips of 100% Canadian western red cedar wood (a rare, soft yet very strong timber). The hull is then covered with an invisible layer of clear fiber glass cloth which is bonded with watertight clear epoxy resin and is then coated with marine varnish. This combination of fiberglass & epoxy is very strong & abrasion resistant and completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood shows through while protecting it for generations.
This Hudson Kayak is good for the average paddler to use in open water, surfing, and even racing. The low back deck permits the paddler to easily lean back and the foredeck is high enough that most paddlers will be able to get their legs in and out while sitting down. This kayak's performance is fast and efficient and surfs very easily. This kayak is good for both average and experience paddlers to use on lakes, rivers, and open water.
