Re: Strip: Bjorn thomasson frej for big guy

Hey John,

Thanks for the tip. My feet are about size eur 45 (27 cm). I think I will buld the hull and mock something up for the deck using cardboard or somethink like that. That should give a pretty good impression of what the seating position will be like. I am also still deciding om whether to go small ocean cockpit and keyhole. My experience so far has been that I can hardly get out of kayaks with too small a cockpit without falling over and getting wet. I don't think wet exits will be a broblem. It is the dry ones that will, especially when I am tired from a long day of paddling. How do you like your cockpit?
