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 its sea trials and found it extremely easy to roll with its dramatically low rear cockpit - it's even lower than the Murrelet (1.3" lower). Petite paddlers love the snug fit and lower volume deck for higher angle paddle strokes. Like the original Greenlandic sealskin kayaks the new Selkie is a hard-chined 14' x 22.5" boat designed for petite women and for larger paddlers who want a low volume kayak to play in the surf!

Over the years we've heard some pretty incredible stories from our customers. Everything from romance to life's hardships, we've been amazed at the roles our boats have played in people's lives. Customers have told us that building a kit helped them get through chemotherapy. Others have launched their boats on their wedding days. Whether you have a tear jerking or comical story, we want to hear it. You've been making us both laugh and cry for years and we decided it was high time to share that with the rest of the world... hence the blog. On our blog we will be featuring great stories and adventures of both our own and our customers. So if you have a great Pygmy Boat story please consider sharing it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org (just put "Blog Idea" in the subject line). In the meantime, happy reading on the Pygmy Blog!
