Design notes: A custom-fit an asymmetrical solo boat with a displacement bow and ample tumblehome. The design objective for this boat was pretty simple, something that is light enough to carry deep into the backcountry, stable enough to fish from, and a solid paddler even in less than perfect conditions. “The Brookie” is equally at home with a pack and a fly rod deep in that secret lake as it is with kid or dog out for an evening paddle after work. Most often described as fast and efficient, this design has proven itself to be equally effective with either a double or single-blade paddle. Easily our most popular solo boat, Brookie owners are folks who cover the miles.

Design notes: A custom-fit asymmetrical (ish) solo boat with a displacement bow and ample tumblehome. This is a true hybrid between our solo boats and tandems. “The Splake” is a more than just a scaled-up version of its smaller counterparts because it has substantially more initial stability than the solo boats while still being small enough to handle comfortably with a kayak paddle. If you and your gear are just a little too much for a traditionally sized solo boat, let’s talk spake.
