East Hudson Bay Kayak
This is a replica based on the Canadian Canoe Museum's 990.61, built in 1976 by Povungnituk Inuit. It measures 18'6-3/4" long by 30-7/8" and is 10-5/8" depth-to-sheer. Frame completed September, 2011; covered April 2012.
The color scheme mimics use of scraped and un-scraped sealskins. Such a pattern is relatively common on kayaks from this region.
The gunwales are recycled from an earlier project, as is the coaming front.
