I understand there not being a market for a boat as small as the one I built my wife. She's 4'11 and 90lbs so her selection is even smaller. It does surprise me though that there is not a market for the 110lb'ers since there are so many of them. I suppose if the Piccolo got discontinued there may not be. I've been casually keeping an eye out for one for a while now. We already have 2 Tsunami SP's in our fleet and if they were a little longer and had a decent thigh brace they'd be fine. At 21 inches they are very stable. My wife and daughter stand in them and paddle them like paddle boards but they are the on the petite side of petite.
The main reason I posted this was to draw attention to the fact that there is a hole in the market. Yes there are shorter boats available but nothing in that 14.5-15 foot range. A "real" sea kayak size. Hopefully I don't draw too much fire for the "real" comment.
