Updates and Details
As you already know, we are diligently working toward getting boats produced as soon as possible. Here are some updates and details.
We are scheduled to start production by late October which means shipping should start in November. Our Kickstarter backers will receive the first boats followed by our pre-order customers. Of course, as we know more, we’ll pass that information along.
History of the Clamp
In the beginning…
Just to give you a little understanding into our processes, here is the prototype clamp that was used in the demo boats and in our Kickstarter video. Very large and cumbersome!

Here are some of the prototypes we built along the way…
Still quite large prototype clamp

Another prototype clamp – getting smaller
Below is a mockup of the clamp that’s currently being produced to our specs. The production clamp will have a longer angled thumb tab for better control. Much more streamlined than the original, or any of the ones in between!

See how easy the clamps work.
And that’s the news, from Pakayak HQ. Until next time…be safe and healthy.
