Built for the paddler Posted by: mintjulep on Dec-14-12 11:31 AM (EST)
A "proper" Greenland kayak is built to dimensions that are derived from various body size measurements of the intended paddler.
That is to say, they are custom.
Of course many skin boats are built to "standard" plans, and the dimensions not modified to fit a specific paddler.
So it may or may not fit you, and the only way to know is to go try it.
Having said that, it's wood, glue and fabric. It was built and can be rebuilt or modified relatively easily.
Having said that, the cost to buy an already built boat and modify it probably won't be any less than the cost to build from scratch.
