Fast Razorbill Sea Kayak
This strip built Razorbill has been the shop boat for several years. Used lightly by Al Bratton and maintained to take to shows. I am selling off a few of the shop boats to keep new and fresh ones in the display. I plan to building a shorter model to replace it.

Good winter project if you want to have a boat ready for spring!
