The Mill Creek Hybrid’s hull is identical to the standard Mill Creek’s, with computer-cut BS 1088 Okoume panels that go together very quickly. Computer-cut molds are set into the hull with temporary hot glue. These molds shape and support the deck during construction. With the kit we include a mixture of dark and medium color western red cedar strips, plus white cedar strips for light accents. The strips are milled with a “bead and cove” joint so that one slides into the next for perfect joinery. While we offer suggested patterns, each builder can develop their own unique strip deck design as they assemble their kit.
Both Mill Creek 16.5 models share the same enormously versatile hull and cockpit. Not only can you paddle it as a single or a double, but you can sail it or even add a sliding seat unit to create an ocean shell. The Mill Creek 16.5's stability will reassure the most nervous paddlers
