I seem to recall that Old Town has called their three layer roto-molded construction by various names over the years but they still use it in many of their boats. You can check out which ones here:

Thanks, pblanc for the info. I wanted an informative reply to a simple question and yours was the only one. My question concerned OT rec. kayaks, and I guess I should've made that clearer. The 3-layer OT boats I have may be a bit heavy, which only matters when loading, but the built-in flotation and the stiffness of the hull outweighs any other negatives for calm water paddling.

but are concerned that single layer poly kayaks are "junk", consider buying one of the growing spectrum of "crossover" kayaks by LL, Jackson, Dagger, Pyranha, and Wave Sport.
