The Petrel is very fast and very maneuverable. It can handle rough water better than most any other boat known to man. Yet it is easy for even a novice to paddle.

As I stated in my last post, I have started to build a Petrel. The Petrel is a high performance rough water sea kayak. It was designed by Nick Schade and Nick is the paddler in all of these photos. In this photo Nick is playing in the rough surf caused by hurricane Hana.

Well I have started a third Kayak. I just do not have the time to wait for glue to dry. As I'm working on the Guillemot, I get frustrated because I have to stop working to allow the glue or the epoxy to set. My time is to valuable to just sit around. So today when I was forced to stop working, I started a Petrel.
