Randolph's Kayak


That's my boat baby!

These are photos taken before the maiden voyage of my home built replica of an Aleute baidarka. I had test paddled the frame, wrapped in Saran wrap, a month or two eariler, in August 2001. All went well on the test paddle, so I sewed on the nylon skin. After these pictures, I paddled the boat out of Moss Landing harbor, into the ocean, where it performed beautifully. I was aided in both construction and test paddling by Sebastian and Stefani. Tony also help in building.

Randolph.


Here is one of me paddling my friend Warren's Greenland kayak and paddle.
