It certainly is. In the words of Jack Clarke in "Angmagssalik Round Britain":
So was born the Kayel Angmagssalik Eskimo Kayak, eighteen feet eight inches long, nineteen inches across the beam, with a bow like a sword-fish and the lure of a beauty queen.

I have to confess I had my eye on it Chris. A beautiful example. £200 seems like an absolute bargain to me. But then again I am a borderline obsessive.. okay then, just obsessive. :-)

I don't think you are alone Tim. It had about 700 views and 70 watchers. Gone to someone who appreciates it. Funny to think it nearly got burnt in a skip a few years back!

I'd been watching this one and was very tempted to bid on it - it's the first boat I ever built...
(Oooh! How nostalgic?)

Looks like nobody wants it, Nick. 2 days to go, and bidding still under £10. You'd think somebody would buy it, if only to hang it on the wall. (If they've got a 19-foot-long wall...)

Mary, it sold for £82. I hope it's gone to someone who'll care for it.

FYI I was at Herts young Mariners base at the weekend & they had one of these in fairly good condition they were trying to literally give away to clear some room, I don't think there were any takers if anyone fancies one. Way too small for me sadly.

Paddled our club boat over the weekend and had a chance to try it against modern K1s. It is more tippy than an '8' but less so than a '3'. It's competitiveness probably reflects these figures. If you do go under of course you can roll up easily so it might do rather better than '3' in sufficiently choppy conditions... but is rolling allowed in competition...would they let me take part?

After reading this thread yesterday, and spotting a Granta Surf Ace on Shpock, I delved into my eighties Boat Show brochure file and found I had four different Granta brochures, probably from four boatshow visits.

I always wanted the surf kayak back then, and still do...plans anyone?

Anyway, there is a good bit on the Angmagssalik, and also pics of all the GRP kayaks.
Ummmm
