Matt, no it isn't the StinkEye. This is one of Kaz's designs. Looks very interesting :D

23-24lbs the way you see it. The only thing missing are the bags.

For anyone interested in comparing boats, I was up at Zoar Gap today and got video of three different Millbrook boats coming through:

Defiant http://youtu.be/6bSqMOPZ71Y
Rayge http://youtu.be/iCcrUFYgTnk
Shacho http://youtu.be/BxS01LXDdMA

You can change the quality of the videos to HD (720p)

I was in the Rayge, wrong time to take it easy!!!!! Perfect time to show off the Rayge. Oh well, next time.


I had a chance to paddle the Millbrook Boats SHACHO in class 2. I really liked it, had excellent cut back ability when surfing, good hull speed, felt stable, and turned well, I'd like to try it in bigger water. I think its another good design by John Kazimierczyk

Is it a symmetrical boat? I can't tell from the photos.

Kaz's boats generally have a "Cab forward" or "fishform" design. Looking at the side view at the top of this page (http://www.millbrookboats.com/solo.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) it looks like more bow (left side) rocker than stern. That would be consistent with the Spark and Inferno.
