Harvey Golden's Kayaks


I had dinner, weekend before last, with Harvey Golden and his family - but neglected during the Depoe Bay Boat Show to get a decent photo of the skin kayaks he brought.

Fortunately for us, there is a great blog about Harvey's historical research on the native kayaks of Greenland at 70.8%.

Harvey has written a book documenting the history of these simple, functional and beautiful native vessels:

Kayaks of Greenland
; The History and Development of the Greenlandic Hunting Kayak 1600-2000
