Went to go check out a kayak today listed in craigslist.
Aside from it looking like it needs major work - it looks somewhat interesting?
Pictures can be seen here:
16' 9" overall length
11.5" height (mid section of cockpit rim)
interior cockpit dimensions:
Hull is soft chine
The Masik area is angular
The angular masik area along with lack of bulk heads and foot braces might be possible indicators that this kayak may be an early interpretation of the Igdlorssuit? - Pre Anas Acuta?
Any guesses on the make/model of this kayak?
Seller is asking $250 - worth the effort to restore? - can see that thread here: http://www.paddling.net/message/showThread.html?fid=advice&tid=1611006#1611649
Thank you all in advance!

What is it made of? Doesn't look like |

composite. You need to know the construction so you know what methods to use.
I agree, can of worms|

It looks to me like a complete can of worms. Incompetent bulkheads that would have to be entirely replaced. No foot braces. An ominous spider crack and badly bashed stern that indicate UV damage and brittleness from neglect. Horribly funky seat that would also have to go. Missing hatch cover that could be a pain to match.
so many choices|

so many companies have made and imported kayaks that there's always some odd ball models to be found.
Project or paddling?|

If you want a project to take up lots of your time - buy it.
