The Mystery is 20ft long over all with a 19' - 11 1/8" waterline length & 40 lbs.  More information @ Guillemot-kayaks.com.  It was handmade by Tim Feager and was his 7th kayak build over 25 years.  He spent his early life as a craftsman and the workmanship shows.  The hull consists of 3/16" strips of western red cedar and white cedar.  The deck is 1/8" strips of western red cedar.  The entire vessel is encapsulated in 4 oz fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin and then varnished.  There are bulkheads fore and aft that are vented for traveling over the mountains as there are no hatches.  Every consideration was given to weight in the build thus no deck lines, bungees or other touring kayak safety accessories. The rudder system is Smart Track modified to rest straight back instead of up when not deployed.   

It has been well cared for and stored inside.  Paddled in the Gulf waters and around Table Rock Lake.  A fast cruiser that can easily maintain 5 mph and tracks straight. Having a fast boat was very important to him and why he was always searching for the next one.  This is ideal for a racer or someone who just needs to make miles.

A brief trial on Creve Coeur Lake last week I was able to reach 5.9 mph in a short sprint and could have done better had I been more comfortable.  My brother can no longer paddle so she needs a new home.  More pictures available upon request.

Located in the St. Louis area

$2,900. OBO

This is a lovely boat that will always be a conversation starter.  I paddled it and it is set up for racing: delightful and seriously fast.  Best for someone under 175. Best part is that it was made by a perfectionist and the workmanship is the best I have ever seen.

It looks like there is a lot of interest in the Mystery.  I really would like to move her out so I'm dropping the asking to:

$2,900.00

But make an offer.

Other items remain the same, but, make an offer.

Time to move this back to the top. She’s just hanging around collecting dust folks. Would make a good Christmas present!😊. The cart is included also.  Lowering price to $2,500. OBO.
