Nordkapp Identification.

Postby dekkas » Thu Apr 20, 2017 6:44 pm

Hi there,
I've been Kayaking on sit-ons for about 3 years now. I always wanted to get into sit-in kayaks/canoes but never really got around to it for one reason or another. Usually price. However I happened across a Nordkapp for sale on a forum for $20 and could not resist. I have a small amount of background knowledge in restoration and thought i'll have a go myself at restoring this old girl.

My issue is I can't seem to find any details on the exact Nordkapp i'm attempting to restore. I've spent about maybe 2-3 hours Googling various subjects relating to Nordkapp but cannot find the actual model that I have. Usually I come up with later models with oval shaped hatches etc, but nothing round. I am wondering if anyone out there may know any details on the model I have?

If you do I would love to hear from you as I really want to get this right. Thank you for your time.

Do you have any pictures of the hull? I used to have an old nordkapp with Henderson hatches and chimp pump similar to that and I think it was one somebody had made at home. It was dam heavy. i am guessing that was an ocean cockpit at one stage?

Have you read the Nordkapp history at UK Sea Kayak guide? ... rdkapp.htm
