Designed by Rob Feloy in Devon.
Tested in the English Channel, St Georges Channel and Fastnet waters off West Cork.
Rob has designed a lot of sea kayaks, Inuk and the C -Treks to name just a few. He also designs ocean crossing kayaks and Coastal Rowing Boats but we won’t talk about these here. Most of Rob’s designs have been way out there, out where mere mortal paddlers fear to paddle. After some “careful persuasion and resolute nagging” Rob was persuaded to design the best all round British Sea kayaks for those of us that cannot walk on water. Seabird Scott is the result and it’s a stunning sea kayak to paddle – best of all designed by a Brit especially for British waters.
Available in three sizes Low Volume, Medium Volume and High Volume so there is no need to squeeze into a kayak that is too tight or slop around in a kayak that is too big. The lines are perfect and the decals and styling are just right.
What is refreshingly different is the combination of styles being fish form below the water line and Swede form above. The hull shape uses Rob’s knowledge of hydrodynamics and is therefore very efficient whilst not losing site of the paddlers stability requirements. The amount of rocker, shallow V and flat section allow a paddler to get the very best out of his or her abilities. The volume distribution reflects the true requirements of British waters. It is not a sea kayak designed for Baltic and Skaggerack waters like so many others are. The way Scandinavian paddlers have taken to Scott is a real compliment to the design
All the usual stuff is there like retractable skeg, hatches, key hole cockpit and backband. The thigh brace option is also very clever as it suits differing paddling styles. The British Style is probably derived from surfing and white water paddling where the paddler is braced with knees under the foredeck. The European Style is derived from more flat water paddling with knees closer together so thigh braces that cover both options is the answer.
The Seabird Scott range is brilliant, affordable and has been well worth the wait.
