This is a Valley Nordkapp of paddler Tsunamichuck, and it is a winner. Black on black, with skull and crossbones, the Nordkapp needs no introduction: it is a legendary boat for the high seas, an expedition boat. I have paddled TSC's Nordkapp. This is the vessel that RobG reviews below; it was formerly owned by RobG. The photos give you some idea about bombproof Valley construction.
