Description
 

Length 5.35m
Designer: Paolo Lodigiani
Chine hull, Stitch & Glue construction
Building Skills: amateur

The NAIADE is a two seat NINFA and has similar characteristics. It is not a real double sea kayak, as this would require an extra meter, as well as different characteristics (with all the inconveniences involved, such as road transport with boats that are longer than 5.50 m) but it is perfectly suitable for pleasure trips in calm waters, under safe conditions, even for amateur paddlers. We have designed the kayak with two separate cockpits because we feel it is the best solution as it allows one to tackle a possible rapid or wave with greater safety, but for those who are particularly keen on choosing exclusively calm waters, the single large cockpit solution may prove to be more comfortable. The chine and round versions have similar characteristics, except for the aesthetic qualities. Unless the constructor wishes to confront himself with the strip planking technique, there are no reasons in this case to encourage the use of this type of construction - which requires a greater amount of work.
