Hi,

I have had a k-light feathercraft, bought it new in 1997, have loved it for 20 years and it is pretty faded and starting to show its age. Now I have a bigger family and was thinking of getting a double, I was sad to learn feathercraft have closed up shop.

Anyhow I am in the market for a boat and figured I would join up and share my experiences and learn more about what's new in the folding kayak world.

Cheers

Corin

Hi Corin,
Greetings from VT. Not much great news here on Feathercraft as you know. Pakboats has most of the newer lighter weight designs these days. Long Haul Kayaks is the only folding kayak manufacturer left in North America. Good luck with your quest. There are many good tandems to choose from.

Pakboats still make their XT-17, which might suit you. It's configurable as a tandem or single kayak
