Can anyone tell me the manufacturer of the above listed kayak. It is a double (tandem, I guess you call it) fiberglass, 18 feet long. There are no other markings or labels on the kayak. Also does anyone have a guess as to what it would sell for? thanks for any info. cheers.
picture and hull id# would help a lot.
thanks for your input but apparently I cannot put a photo on this site. cheers.

women’s tandem sprint kayak?
I’m thinking – maybe what you have is a tandem sprinting competition kayak custom built for a race. The WK2 is an official race event (Women’s K2). Does it look like the boats in this video? As in low profile and fairly narrow?
does it look like this?
Here’s a shot of a K2 sprint boat out of the water if you want to compare it to yours.
(if you are wondering about the gorgeous location in the background, it is Deep Cove on Indian Arm, the tip of a Pacific fiord northeast of Vancouver – I was there last year and saw a lot of sprinters practicing in similar boats. Might be a market for your boat in an area like that.)
Sorry, when you go to that link, click on “K2” on the left and it will display the K2 boats out of the water on the gravel beach at Deep Cove.
in too much of a rush today – first you have to click on the “kayaks” tab on the site home page, then click on “K2”. Can’t create a direct link to that tab.
Not sure if you or anyone cares about this any more, but that boat is a double sea kayak designed by Werner Furrer, Sr. It was the double version of the WT-500, and is hard to find. It is sea-worthy and very stable, tracks well and is like sitting in an aircraft carrier. It is slower then the narrower current doubles. He partnered with Tom and Lisa Derrer to start designing sea kayaks for Eddyline and stopped making his own boats, and his son makes pretty good paddles ;). This history of Werner paddles mentions the WT-500 but no images of the WK2-560.
