Two hole Aleut kayak

22'1" long  23" wide 9 5/8" deep  ca. 1850's
The original of this kayak replica resides in the National Museum of Finland.  Thanks to Harvey Golden for lending me the survey.   This kayak sits low in the water and rolls pretty good. 
I imagine with a full load it would sit very low, despite that I had almost no water in the kayak after a day of paddling and fishing offshore.  It does a respectable job of punching through the surf and handles well running in a heavy sea chop.    The subtle flexibility was a comfort and definately quiets the kayak.  Most enjoyable though was the weight,  less than 50 lbs,  without that we could have never carried it on the long walks to and from the water
