As an arctic anthropologist with the National Museums of Canada (now the Canadian Museum of Civilization), from 1971-1982, I developed a passion for studying, building and writing about Arctic Kayaks.  This site is intended as a means to share the results of my research.

The site includes a description of kayak types, kayak construction, a database of kayaks, an annotated bibliography of Arctic Kayaks and publications for sale.  A search engine allows site navigation by keyword.
