    While doing some reading about the Sealution kayaks, I found this interesting information about the designer, Harrie Tieken.
    I didn't realize there was a connection between Canada and the Wilderness kayaks.

    Thanks; the credit is due to Oud Horinees who wrote that blog.
    The sea kayak manufacturing 'world' was a small one in Canada and the USA 'back in the day' - lots of interesting personalities.
