A Boat Naming Contest

Our newest design takes two of our most popular boats (The Arctic Tern 14 and the Murrelet) and marries them into one elegant, light weight boat that petite women, or those looking for a tight fitting play boat, will love.  John Lockwood nailed his first static brace in it’s recent sea trials and found it extremely easy to roll with it’s dramatically low rear cockpit (it’s even lower than the Murrelet).  We’ve already had it at the coast for some fun surf sessions where both a 135 lb woman and 200 lb man had a great time in this low volume beauty.

So the boat is here, but she still needs a name.  After tossing around some ideas we decided to turn to you and include our customers in the brainstorming.  We’ve included some photos above so you can get a feel of what she looks like on the water.  The winner gets a free Pygmy hoodie (and the bragging rights, of course).
