Last spring I launched a new company for the coverage of our kayak and canoes. Clear Stream Custom Water Craft‘s website is finally ready for the world to see. Do to the popularity of smart-phones and tablets, it was designed from the ground up to be “responsive.”users. They should find the new site to be a lot more user friendly. It automatically adapts to the the size of whatever screen you’re using. Users on PC and laptops: go to the site, shrink the window and you’ll see what I mean by “responsive!”
The new site will cover 100% of the kayak and canoe builds. In time I’ll point pages from this site to relevant pages there. There is a lot more information than the old. There is more information on the general construction layups and more kayak and canoe designs. The designs page includes complete pages for the new “SEA” series designed by Jonathan Rose and the exciting “Wahoo” fast sea kayak. With our new agreement with Björn Thomasson, I also show some of his designs that customers should find interesting. I’ll be adding new designs as they become available.
In the near future I’ll also be adding more pages and fleshing out others.
I’ll be moving the on-line shop where home builders can buy wood or carbon fiber components for their kayaks. I’ll have recesses for hatches (Beckson and VCP-style), recesses for compasses, deck fittings, handles, even complete carbon coamings and carbon skeg kits. I’ll also be selling a few stock items (like drinking glasses and apparel).
This year I also hope to start hosting classes to build plywood versions of Bjorn’s famous “Black Pearl” Greenland kayak. For home builders, I will also have kits. If interested in either let me know!
This site will get streamlined as well and made responsive. All boat-specific pages will get removed and/or pointed to the new. I’ll leave the blog entries for the boats though. Eventually the two sites will become independent.
Thanks for stopping by. Check out the new site when you get a chance!
