Alaw Bach TCC 17'2" 21" - - 54 5'5"-6'" 130-190 Seadog rubber hatches - 10" Round front and rear and 8" Day hatch $2,950

Rockpool’s most popular design is now being built under license at the Eddyline Kayaks factory here in Washington state. The Alaw Back TCC is the first British sea kayak to be built using thermoformed composite construction (TCC). This is the latest manufacturing technology available in kayak construction. These kayaks are built from sheets of thermoformed plastic that are stiffer and lighter than the polyethylene plastic used to build roto-molded kayaks. As with fiberglass kayaks, these thermoformed kayaks won't warp or loose their shape over time. An added advantage is that the thermoformed plastic used to build the Rockpool TCC kayaks is more scratch resistant than either a roto-molded or fiberglass kayak.
