I had originally provided the lines of this Igdlorssuit kayak in a HULLS file, but now that FREE! Ship is available, I’ve reentered the lines of this kayak. The year was 1959.

The Anas Acuta spawned a wave of British kayaks, and according to a family tree compiled by Duncan Winning those include: Nordkapp, Skerray, Aquanaut, Pintail, Avocet, Q-Boat, Island Kayaks’ Expediton, Newt, Qaarsut(an exact replica of the hull in fiberglass with a modern deck), and Qaarsut 550.

Kayak Design Software. Like many kayak builders before me, having built a few different designs, I began to think about designing one of my own.
