Baidarka

In 1992 my friend Randy Jones and I paddled 700 miles in Patagonian Chile in Baidarkas designed by George Dyson. Randy and I built our boats in Seattle, dis-assembled them and shipped them to Puerto Aysen in Chile, where we spent several weeks re-assembling them before our trip. The traditional Inuit baidarka hull-form has some interesting characteristics not seen in other kayaks.
