Traverse Folding Kaya from New Zealand

Just saw this one via the usually excellent Paddle Upstream Magazine http://www.upstreampaddle.com/

The Traverse Folding Kayak Company out of New Zealand. http://www.traversekayaking.co.nz/

Only one model but relatively cheap..

The assembly manual is interesting. it's quite a complex deign for the money. Interesting alternative to the snap on connectivity of HDPE to the aluminium stringers - more flexible and allows for lighter stiffer cross members/bulkheads, albeit fiddlier to assemble and disassemble. Quite Klepper like in its width and the inclusion of a rudder. At that width I imagine it's very stable indeed.
