The Brown Pelican is an awesome design. It is 14 inches tall in the front and 7 inches in the back. At slow speed the rear is out of the water but drops down to track at paddle speed. It's workmanship is typical mid-eighties Phoenix (great layup work). It is front heavy when on land but is still about 28 pounds and easy to carry. Has good stability. Not much cargo space and no bulkheads but great for day paddles. Like no other boat I've seen. Looks like front end canoe, back end racing kayak.

It is a classic looking, natural finish, about 25 lbs, responds to body shift, planes out and tracks well at higher speed, handled 18" choppy waves, is 23 inches wide.
Discontinued, don't know why, maybe no mass market appeal. Not a beginner kayak although decent stability.
