21’ Twin Star

Twin Star© tandem baidarka sea kayak by Laughing Loon

Length 21' Width 26"

I have received very good reviews of the handling characteristics of the Twin Star,
as I would expect from my other baidarka designs. Note the owner has not installed a rudder.

Provision was made for a rudder by altering the stern stem to a vertical edge to facilitate rudder installation, However, the design paddles well without a rudder in the hands of experienced paddlers.

All the great baidarka qualities are here in a tandem wood strip sea kayak.

The baidarka style, with its great volume carried forward and aft leans itself to being the best design suited to a tandem configuration. Most Greenland style based tandems leave little room for gear for extended trips. The Twin Star provides very ample gear storage for long trips.

Twin Star is a tandem version of my popular North Star baidarka.

I have not put together a specific set of building instructions for the Twin Star. I sell the North Star instruction book with the full scale template sheets for the Twin Star.
