  Rake
  Posted by: falcon on Oct-04-12 4:08 PM (EST)
 

In terms of kayak description it refers to the angle of the stern or bow and not the rocker. It would be possible to have a completely flat hull and a raking bow, but why?
One significant advantage of a raking bow and stern is that the more weight you put in it the more you lengthen the waterline.
