Feather is an Aleutian-style baidarka
characterized by light weight, elegant construction
and a high degree of responsiveness.
When you paddle Feather
you'll see why the ancient Aleuts thought of these
craft as living beings.
The plans explore the phenomenon of frame flexibility
and the jointed keel, with a modern version of a low-friction slip joint detailed.
The plans detail allow choice of several designed lengths or widths.
You can build Feather in a choice of lengths (10 1/2 to 17 feet)
with widths from 22 to 26 inches.
