CLC Northbay

North Bay XL: (18'-10"x22"). Weight 40 pounds. I modified the stock CLC plans by dropping the shear line of the side panels by 2" at the aft end of the cockpit. The new shear line was drawn using this point and the stock bow and stem heights. This makes for a low center of gravity, which facilitates rolling and bracing. The North Bay models have a reputation of weather cocking (pointing into the wind), so I planed a bit more rocker into the bow and added a small fixed skeg to the stem, plus I moved the seat aft by 1". These modifications seem to have worked, as the boat was neutral in the water in a stiff breeze. Another fix, recommended by CLC, is the installation of a retractable skeg during construction.

The above statement was from the original builder but sums the boat up pretty well. a picture can be seen on the connyak home page under boat builders, Brooks Martyn. I have not used the boat in several years. I am 6'2" and fit in it but because of the modification it leaves me no free board. boat would be a good fit for someone around 170lbs. only boat I ever hand rolled. for more pictures email pprice at snet dot net. boat is in mint condition and I am looking for $800 cash.

P&H Cetus HV

This is a used 2014 fiberglass Cetus HV with a foamed bulkhead, keel strip and compass, for sale at $2200.

The Cetus is a fast cruiser designed as a load carrier. It has become the natural choice for paddlers looking for a stable expedition platform or a fast, easy to paddle boat for long distance paddles. However it's not just a boat for long trips though, it's equally as capable being used as a fast day cruiser. Has fourth hatch in easy reach in front of your cockpit, quick and easy to reach to stow a camera or day gear when things are getting a bit rougher.

Proem by Pat Moore

Pat Moore designed this innovative canoe, which was built by Blackhawk Canoes in Janesville, Wisconsin. Unlike most canoes, the Proem's lines focus on replacing displaced water, allowing it slip through the water will hardly any wake and no gurgling, even when turning sharply. The result is a joy to paddle, especially on quiet water where the paddler wants to blend into the environment. To accomplish Mr. Moore's goal, he made it widest about a foot forward of center. The waterline is concave over the first few feet rather than convex like most canoes. The bow quarters are extremely flared. The stern tapers over its length to a tall, fine & straight sided stern.
The shearline is very strong, with tall stems making the center look shallow.
The Proem has a pedestal seat that adjusts fore and aft and knee pads. Specs: Weight: 31 lbs; Length: 11'10"; Gunwale width: 26"; 4" Waterline width 24 1/2"
Asking $975 for this rare and special canoe.

NorthStar Pro Tandem Sea Kayak

Light Mint Green, LOA 19’11”, Beam 29”, Weight 99 lbs, Capacity 650 lbs, rudder (retracts from stern cockpit while under way), 3 hatches, deck line, deck compass. This is a very stable boat, even in LI Sound waves. Very easy to paddle, even if only one person is paddling at a time. Unlike some other tandems, including most of the plastic ones, this has a nice amount of rocker (the curve on the keel from bow to midships to stern) which greatly enhances maneuverability. The length is a real advantage with tracking and speed. Once, while in a hurry, Marsha and I clocked in at 6 knots on the GPS and passed everyone in sight. New, it cost us $4,300. We will take $2,800 for this near-perfect condition craft.

Cedar Strip Outer-Island sea kayak

I am selling a cedar strip Outer Island in great shape. Built exactly per spec with ocean cockpit and wooden hatch covers. I have not kayaked in 4 years due to illness and lack of recovery so I must let it go. As you can see (link to pics below), I chose to sit on a yoga mat on the bottom with a foam "butt bumper" behind me and a foam thigh clamp to lock in. There is a "secret compartment" inside the bumper with a space for an otterbox that holds my wallet and passport. I am including the cockpit cover as pictured and I also have a Snapdragon neoprene spray skirt available (size small tube). I added the Kajaksport deck line fittings and replaced the deck lines and bungees recently. The pictured Lightning Ultralight one-piece paddle is available also. Other gear available as incentive - just ask! Asking $1,700 obro.
