after a year of due consideration I have decided to buy a sit-in kayak (thought about building one but it is just too difficult and the result would be too heavy and of doubtful water-tightness). The size is just right to fit into the Libero with a centimeter to spare both ends and the weight low enough to be lifted alone. Since I cannot not build something I made a pair of wheels for it to get to the water easily (and in style).
my favorite material, marine plywood oiled as basic material and a pair of light big wheels rescued from a broken garden trolley ages ago. Overall weight turned out to be only 1.7kg.
the “scissors” are held together with a bicycle clip that opens easily and the wheels can be stored behind the seat.
oh, and of course it is great fun paddling around our coast.
One thought on “kayak”
I hope your fleet will grow…
