MICROYAK : KAYAK SCALE MODEL






Winter is here, days are short, and when the sun is out it sits low on the horizon making
paddling hard on the eyes. On dark grey windswept winter days, the lake becomes
a bleak uninviting place for most people. I try to shake that feeling and go out
for a spin when I can, but paddling time goes down for sure. So now is the
time to try my hands on other things. Recently I've created something

... small ...



JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT, A 60 CM SCALE MODEL OF LITTLE BASTARD.





For real now, lashings instead of cable ties.

I could not find thinner gauge plastic pipe to use as rib material,
so the gunnels
had to be somewhat thick as the ribs are bored into them.

It's the overal look that counts, outline dimensions and volume are scaled correct,
but some details are worked out in a different manner, Evolution?

Interested to see another small kayak? A new creation.
