At 18 ft, and built for two, the Bay Hawk Duet Canoe Plans shares all of the great design features of the Bay Hawk.
This boat is by popular demand. The Bay Hawk is a very popular boat built in over a dozen countries and paddled world wide. The biggest complaint was that it could not carry another person. Bay Hawk Duet is the answer to that problem. This boat was specifically designed to enjoy all of the high performance paddling capabilities as well as stowage and touring capabilities of its little brother Bay Hawk, but for two. This boat paddles fast and straight and can keep pace with kayakers, with a greater level of comfort and maneuverability.
If you have already built the Bay Hawk, then you have a head start on this boat, as it is built virtually identically. If you have not, then be sure to buy the video with the plans and I am sure that you will enjoy the same success that many others have had. This boat will turn some heads.
This boat has a developed keel line and a low profile which means you will paddle straight with little effort and not be pushed around by the wind. Like its namesake, this boat is paddled with a kayak paddle and employs backrests for comfort. With nearly 9 feet of decked stowage, you can take an extended tour while being sure that your belongings will stay dry. The stowage, if built properly, will also supply ample flotation for a safe trip.
