Night Heron Kit Description

This boat brings the volume of the hull out towards the ends more for a higher prismatic coefficient. This gives it good efficiency at faster speeds. It has fairly hard chines with no concave sections. A slight lean will allow the boat to turn easily. The low back deck permits the paddler to lean back so their head touches the back deck. The foredeck is high enough that most paddlers will be able to get their legs in and out while sitting down. If you need more room for your legs you should look at the High Deck Night Heron.

At 20" wide this is a narrow boat, however it is not scary to paddle. Even novice paddlers quickly get comfortable. The boat tracks well with good balance and is quite fast. It is very easy to roll and perform various braces.

Built a Night Heron in 2015. I have paddled a lot with her and now i can say that this boat is not only a catching-eye beauty ( every one turns his head when she is around), but she is easy enough to be paddled by a novice like me, and fast enough to let me paddle with more expert paddler with racing boats. Thanks Nick!
