BETSIE BAY KAYAK
The MANITOU is approximately 18
feet long and 22 inches in beam. It is designed for the heavier paddler, or medium
size paddlers needing more gearload capacity. It is slightly deeper than the other
BBK models for higher volume. Its roomier cockpit provides a more comfortable fit
for the larger paddler. The slightly wider beam gives more initial stability without
sacrificing speed and performance.
Weight: 30 to 34 lbs.
Manitou (man-it-too) — Algonquian language word for ''spirit''. The Manitou
Islands, (part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore) are a favorite destination
of Great Lakes kayakers.
