Catamarans are faster and more efficient through water than monohulls! - This was the thought passing through my mind whilst trying to catch up with my experienced kayaker friends. We were paddling hard - squeezing through the undergrowth of one of the many Thames’ tributaries in an old part of London. The only wilderness adventure you could get within driving distance
Fast forward some years, a product design degree, and some radical tree tent designs, and here I am in COVID lockdown back with the idea of a fast catamaran kayak. This time I have the time and space to be able to focus on it, and stay focused to carry it through to a finished product.
