    ‘Moonlight’


    1920s Styled Double-Open-Kayak-Canoe For Sale

    Hand-crafted in wood, seventeen and a half feet in length, light, incredibly fast, stable and very comfortable (cushions, hamper rack, etc.). She is perfect; for just paddling the river’s morning mists alone or venturing, Jerome style, its ‘unchartered reaches’ with a friend. Trailered or simply plopped on top of a motor-car’s roof-rack, the canoe is easy to manage and fun to captain. By far, one of the most beautiful boats on this stretch of the river. Immaculate condition and includes: 2 flotation bags, kayak and canoe paddles, 2 extra World War Two paddles, seating and racks, painter, bell and cushions. Unfortunately,she is too long for my garage and needs a new home.



    Designed by Nick Schade for cruising lakes, rivers and exploring sea-bays, ‘Moonlight’ has an impeccable pedigree: ‘Back in the 1880's J. Henry Rushton was at the forefront of an explosion in the popularity of canoeing. His boats had long decks with a cockpit where the paddler sat. In other words, what most people might think of as a kayak, but which was actually a kayak paddled Canadian canoe with a deck. Then, in 1924, George Crouch designed the ground-breaking speedboat ‘Baby Bootlegger’. It was an innovation of its time and the fore-runner of the mahogany runabouts that became popular on the river. ‘Moonlight’ is a combination of Rushton’s double innovation and the great looking shape of the Baby Bootlegger; a roomy, efficient, tandem craft for both cruising and exploring. She moves easily through the water and,should a wind blow in, will handle rough water with aplomb. These boats are rare to come across in this country. Custom built to order from the States, over 30,000 USD: google: handmade 30000 kayak for the adventurers wish list/ microbootlegger tandem and Nick Schade. Precut to order for boat builders over 2,500 USD: Nick Schade (Designer)....Read full description
