ever said, "They just don't make 'em big enough for me,"
try an Eskimo 18-6 on for size. It will be a pleasant surprise!
Designed for tall or heavy paddlers, it is a popular choice
of those in need of a high-volume expedition kayak.
The Eskimo really shines when
it is being loaded with gear:
two large secure hatches give easy access to huge bulkheaded
compartments fore and aft. Gear that takes careful planning
to stow in most other boats, can be loaded without a thought.
This is a proven, field-tested guide boat. Rangers at Glacier
National Park in Alaska use it for patrol work.

Eskimo 18-6 CRX 3G incorporates the innovative CR-System,
the basis for our popular Catamaran, Outrigger, and Sailing
options. It comes with all the outfitting and deluxe options
of every kayak in the Eskimo CRX 3G series.

capacity ended up with all the communal gear and other people's
personal gear they just could not jam in..."
