September 2009 - Chances are you're paddling a boat inspired by the famous "Ken Taylor" / Igdlorssuit Kayak - thanks to Duncan Winning for his excellent article on the history of many of the kayaks we paddle today - including his original line drawing, and the family tree showing all the currently known offspring of Ken's boat.

There are also many other links to other information sources about Greenland Kayaks, as well as another fascinating article by Duncan entitled "It's Inuit, int.it?"
