I just purchased an old kayak. It was advertised as Prijon interceptor II. 19'2" long. It is only 14'9" long. It has Prijon design label on it and HiPP industrial...Mithril kayak on it. Looking for any kind of info please.
Thank You, Leslie

The Interceptor is an old downriver racing kayak.
Not a first kayak|

I know it is a down river racer. I was trying to find out who the designer was, or any pics of one to see if it is what I have. I assume Tony Prijon designed it but it was built by Mithril kayaks. I cant find any info on the kayak. I have found tiny bits and pieces from old classifieds. It also is not my 1st kayak. Purchased it for a fun race between kayak clubs:) Thanks for the response though.
If it's 19 feet long, what class would |

it race in? Downriver whitewater kayaks, c-1s, and c-2s are much shorter.
It's not 19 feet|

It's 14' 9", advertised as 19 feet incorrectly.
Thank s for the info|

Yes. it was advertised as 19'2", but it is 14'9" long. The race is just a fun race. No restrictions really.
Might be a real find. Today's downriver|

racers are aesthetically rather ugly, and have traded general river controlability for more speed. If you're lucky, that old boat may be fast, and non-treacherous too.
Looks like an old school Cobra eliminato|

It is shaped like a racer for sure. Needs a little patching before I can put it on the water. I would put a pic on here but do not know how to.
