''BIF-16 by Thomas Yost: Trial Run 06APR2002''
This kayak is loosely based on the CNM-12212 single chine Aleut
design Tom has built some months ago. It is very fast
for a 16ft kayak and is much more stable than it looks.
With 28deg deadrise and very generous rocker, it tracks
beautifully but can carve a quick turn. It compares
favorably with his
Lowie Museum LM2-14886 in
stability and turning, but is faster.
This will make a great workout boat.
LOA - 16ft 2in.
Beam - 20.5
Weight - 25lbs.
Construction Time - 75hrs.
