It says on the Wayland site that their sponsons are made of rubber coated fabric. Sounds a little dubious.

Also, they have a price of 1,200 E. ($1,500 usd) for the single. But as already mentioned there is the tax and shipping.

probably they meant Hypalon (can be called a synthetic rubber on fabric, I guess); still, Hypalon is an unusual choice for sponsons - they don't need to be that strong and heavy.

1500 USD at source involves same pain as with those $500 Russian boats at source - costly shipping for warranty repairs or replacements.

as regards to the weyland sponsons, these boats appear to be similar to early kleppers , these had sponsons made of a fairly thick rubber I know because my old klepper has them, so their add maybe correct, also I don,t think their two seater skin will go on an aerius 11 as looking at their photo,s the skin dos,nt go round the coaming and go into the slot along the top, also wing nuts seem to be used. import and shipping, these are available from canada which may help . I have listed the price before, the dealer has told me it includes a spray cover. I still hav,nt seen one of these boats, calgary is a long way from cambridge ontario.

Here is another web site about Wayland Amazon. It is in German, but is very translatable:

http://www.wayland.d-meyer.com/index.html

It has some decent photos of the kayak.

Hi All
I have just ordered an Amazon II exp. from Wayland. From my research on internet I think their design and materials changes from time to time - not much but small updates. Which makes it difficult to "compare notes" on the kayak.

I had my eyes set on Klepper Arius II for some time...well that an understatement...for a looong time. But the Klepper costs three times more than the Amazon - almost two months pay (High school teachers is just not appreciated enough :lol: )

I have ordered the Amazon without the rear loading hatch - because of the review of the Harpoon kayak from Wayland.

So I hope that I soon can upload some pictures of it to gallery on the main site and answer your questions about the kayak.

My wife, my little boy and I are looking forward to paddling some of the nice Scandinavian lakes and rivers.

Happy paddling
/Jan
