I've piloted a 2 man Hayden with John Hayden in the gunner position and it's a great boat. Much, much lower profile than the one pictured in the OP. I'm having a 2 man Hayden made right now out of Kevlar. It'll come in at about 55 lbs. The float pictured would work just fine with the right paint job...which would differ from location to location. I just don't know if there's enough interest overall in any scull to make it a profitably endeavor. This is what I've used for the last 3 years. Very, very effective, and very stable.
