  Indonesian kayaks

Stumbled upon this site with information about how Kaskazi kayaks of South Africa provided molds to a group involved in ecouraging ecotourism paddling in the Raja Ampat region of West Papua in Indonesia. Evidently the local craftsmen would first build the fiberglass kayaks to be used for the tourism venture and then be able to build them for income purposes. I wonder if this is related to the source of kayaks the OP mentioned? Even if not, Raja Ampat looks like a spectacular place for kayaking. And helping people with training and micro-loans to develop sustainable livelihoods that could help improve their existence and protect the reefs is an honorable mission.
