    I built an Osprey Std, back in 1996, used it quite a bit, as a quick, responsive backwater boat. Stable, beamy, and very usable in small surf, also. Loved the boat, but sold mine five years when the stable got to big. It has since served a family on lakes in Minnesota, some 17 more years. Not as fast as a Coho or a Murrelet, perhaps, but a very fun vessel. I introduced eight or ten buddies to backwater sea kayaking using it.

    I have an Osprey kit that I brought with me when I relocated from Washington state to Albuquerque, New Mexico. At present I don't have space to build it, and places to paddle are quite far from me. I enjoy the challenges of Pygmy kit building however and may build it anyway this winter. If you're interested in a kit I may be interested in selling. Getting the kit and helpful extras to you may be quite expensive depending on your location, but let me know if you're interested.
