A new kayak has appeared! Let there be light! I actually don't know much about the company other than it's Québec based and seems to be quite ambitious. They have two models out so far, a 17'4" boat and a 16'6" boat both based on "British" design ideas. The chosen name for their boats is 'Vaåg' and the company is called Maelstrom Kayaks.
Their web site is only in French at the moment, but as you click around, it's clear they intend to offer a full service, boats, lessons and even organized expedition style outings. I'll pass along more information as I find it out. So far it looks exciting! Let's wish them luck.
Update! Maelstromekayaks will hold a launching of their 174 and 166 boats at the Aquadome in LaSalle, Quebec on April 6th between 5 and 8 PM. Bring your gear and tryout one of their new boats! See their website to signup and for more details...
