I first built the larger baidarka in the background. It is a rigid, George Dyson type of 6m and only 17kg . This I wanted to take to the Inside Passage, but after I found out what the airlines charge for transporting this kayak, I made the smaller foldable in the foreground. The only problem was that I had three months left to build it from scratch...

That's why it is called Last Chance.
