Want to paddle a Pygmy Borealis XL

I want to paddle one of these boats before I try to build one (or even better - anybody have one to sell?)

I live in Cleveland but travel throughout the Midwest and will be heading to New England and MI in the summer. Does anyone have one of these I can try out please? Just a 10 minutes paddle is all I need. I just want to see if it’s the boat for me.

Any and all idea and offers appreicated. Please feel free to distribute this to other boards as well.

Many thanks -

Ken Barcus


Have you asked Pygmy for the names of owners/builders? They gave me contact information for folks in my area when I asked a few years ago.

I’d ask on the building forum:
