The Aral is the newest addition
to BBK's line of high performance, low volume touring kayaks. The southwest Greenland-based
design features a full length V-bottom and hard chines for excellent tracking and
turning in the most challenging conditions.
The Aral, at 18 feet in length and about 20.5 inches in beam is designed for optimum
performance with paddlers in the 150 to 180 pound range.
Weight: (ready to paddle): 30 to 34 lbs.
Aral - The Aral Sea lies mostly in what is today Uzbekistan, east of the Caspian.
Here in Michigan, off the Manitou shoals, Aral was a logging port on Lake MIchigan,
abandoned after the last virgin white pine in the area was harvested.
