  Continuation of an era....

Brit boats haven't been supplanted in design - but there are more design options out there. Sleek fast boats like QCC and Epic, wide stable boats, and on and on...

But lots of kayakers still buy and love brit boats. Brit boats are also evolving: witness Tiderace, Rockpool, recent P&H additions (Delphin, Cetus), Valley Etain and Gemini....

The quality of Tiderace and Rockpool are considered to be among the top. NDK hasn't cared enough about quality control and it's hurt the reputation of all brit boats, but the quality of most is exceptional.

It seems brit boats are made to withstand more abuse - thicker gel coat, heavier, more reinforcing in key areas, made to withstand a rough surf landing.
