Strong light weight construction. Blue Otter Kayaks are Epoxy/Glass boats with a wood core. This construction technique produces boats that are lighter than composite boats. Full length boats have typical weights around 35 pounds, while shorter boats may weigh less. For example The Guillemot ‘S’ an ideal boat for smaller paddlers comes in at a finished weight of only 32 pounds. These light boats can be loaded
onto the roof of a car or hauled onto the deck of a boat by a single person. A lighter boat requires less energy to paddle and therefore extends the distance you can paddle.
Low Maintenance. Epoxy/Glass requires little maintenance. Boats are finished with a Poly-Urethane Clear Coat to protect against the sun’s UV rays. Depending on use this coating will last from 5 to 10 years. Scratches may be repaired with epoxy repair kits available at any marine supply store.
