I have 2 older fiberglass kayaks that I would like to know who the manufacturer is. They are both identical except the paint. I was told by the previous owner that they were Poke boats. I contacted Poke boats and was told they are not made by them. They are 11.5 feet long and are about 30 inches wide. They are very stable and work great for recreational use on a lake. I plan on doing some minor repairs and repainting them, but it would be nice to know who made them and their approximate age. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

That's strange, the bottom one looks just like an older model poke boat, none the less it's awesome that you're going to restore them, I'll be following this thread.

I had sent the picture to Pheonix Poke boats and they say it isn't theirs. I've spent hours online trying to find a yak that looks like these, but no luck. They are both identical. The red one is pointed the opposite direction in the picture. They both have a small "fin" at the back of the opening. You can see it on the red one. They are cool looking boats, but are a bit beat. The red one is the worst. It looks like it was crashed in the front and someone did a repair with silicone and fiberglass. Ive already started removing the "repair" and getting ready to re-glass. The other one should be a lot easier.

Still no answers as to the manufacturer, but started the restoration on the red one last weekend. It has had a rough life. Several repairs and a lot of unneeded Bondo. So far I have stripped half of the hull and fixed the seams. I think it has lost 10 pounds already. Hope to get the rest stripped and repaired and start on the top this next weekend. I'll post pics of it when done. Then I'll start on the green one. I'm hoping it is in better shape.

Update
After stripping the hull down, it appears it may be kevlar, not fiberglass. Actually a mix of kevlar cloth with a coat of fiberglass mat. Weird!
