  Nothing like aging out....
  Posted by: Celia on Dec-09-12 11:17 AM (EST)
 

People coming into this sport now do realize that even a pretty darned old modern sea kayak is still younger than the house they may have grown up in.... yes?

From Wikipedia - not a totally reliable source but close enough for a quick check - "The Nordkapp was originally designed by Frank Goodman for the British Norway expedition (the Nordkapp Expedition) in 1975."

As to the "it" boat - personally I would prefer one that stashed itself in a box after use like itt from the Adams family. But I don't think we have found a way to make fiberglass compress that small then blow up again to a 16 ft long boat. I'll be first in line if they figure it out though - imagine being able to toss your boat onto the front seat beside you after a paddle!
