So after the experiment with the stand up board (see first posting titled Flat Hull seakayaks) I decided to make a 14ft boat with a flat bottom. As you can see it looks like a surf boat just much longer. These are pictures of the computer model. With me in it (200lbs) I have 2" of draft. Most sea kayaks have 4" to 5". I hope I can still cruise a long easily at 3/4 knots but I hope I will be able to catch swell way more easily and be much faster than a regular sea kayak. I guess we'll see. I also hope to be able to surf in to the beach with out going sideways like sea kayaks do which is pretty lame.
