paraphrase the famous Packard slogan: “Ask the paddler who has one.” Construction is state-of-the-art, with computer-cut panels folding together with uncanny speed and accuracy. Dark red sapele decks are standard in every kit, the reddish-brown swirling grain of the decks contrasting with the honeycolored okoume sides and bottoms. Watertight bulkheads and flush hatches are standard. For quick and painless assembly, CLC pre-drills the holes for copper stitches in all Shearwaters.

The Shearwater is an eye-catching, light and fast cruiser that does many things well.

It is a strong

contender for the budget-minded paddler looking to

answer the ‘if I could only have one kayak’ question.
