Esk 12'6" Sea Kayak.
This is a genuine hand-crafted item, not mass produced or built from a kit.
Brand new and unused!
My daughter and I built a couple of these kayaks last summer, for family use, and enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to build another one for sale.
Construction is epoxy ply, to a tried-and-tested "Selway Fisher" design. In most respects we've exceeded the designers minimum spec (e.g., the whole of the exterior is glassed over and double coated with epoxy), resulting in an extremely durable hull .
All the exterior paintwork is high quality enamel, as used in the marine and motor car industry.
Overall length is 12'6"
There are two storage lockers / buoyancy chambers (one in the bow, and another just behind the cockpit) with screw down water-tight hatches, suitable for storing tins of beer, dry clothes, etc. There's also a completely sealed buoyancy chamber in the stern, which is filled with flotation material.
2 deck bungees (one in front, one behind) provide secure stowage for fishing tackle, camping gear etc.
Longitudinal runners and "V" profile give excellent directional stability, so covering distance isn't too tiring. We've been using ours at sea for mackerel fishing, with great success.
We've got about a week's work to do to finish it off, and I haven't made the paddle yet so if you're quick you can choose left or right handed.
Price is £600
(£200 deposit and £400 on collection / delivery).
Collection from Llyn Peninsular, North Wales, or delivery to mainland UK at cost (or in return for a (preferably successful) stalk on any deer species).
Attached photos show the two we built last summer - one identical in all respects to that advertised, and one the same but slightly larger (14'6").
