Current Designs Willow
Here's Michele in our Willow, at the finish of the Lighthouse Race 2009, and below in a wintry Saugatuck River.
The Willow is a straight-tracking, light weight, lower-volume British design kayak, easy to paddle, roll, load and store. It's designed for paddlers 100 to 170 pounds. British style kayaks are slightly wider in relation to their length, and have a higher foredeck than Greenland style boats.
Ms. Kayak says: This is my favorite kayak. It has a dayhatch, enough
length for speed, and is easy to lift and load. It's a bit less
responsive than the Eliza, but holds its course without needing the
skeg. FYI, I'm 120#, 5'4".
