We know that just because you are an avid birder and wild life lover, you may not be a seriously experienced boat person. This is a boat which is an enhancement to your equipment, not an end in and of itself.

Facing forward, it is easy and comfortable to paddle. You sit comfortably with your binoculars, guides drinks and sandwich right at hand in dry storage with extra space for a jacket or other essentials. Of course, by building your own, you can customize the layout.
