This boat has been very little used, as you can tell from the condition. The manufacturer's website says this about the fiberglass Nomad:

"If you want efficiency and speed in an expedition touring kayak the Nomad is for you. The long slender waterline of the Nomad makes an extremely efficient hull and gives you a super fast open water boat. Very versatile, it slices through waves with ease, maneuvers beautifully, and allows the paddler to handle adverse conditions with confidence. This seaworthy design can handle expeditions, extended tours, or day trips in all conditions. The High Volume (HV) model is 3/4" deeper, allowing for a roomier cockpit.
Our vacuum-bagged fiberglass laminate is a notch above most other fiberglass products on the market. Vacuum-bagging allows us to select and place reinforcing materials to provide the optimal strength and stiffness properties without adding unnecessary weight. The result is a superbly crafted composite kayak that's impeccably finished inside and out."

I added a keel strip for protection, and also a small fixed skeg. The skeg greatly improves the boat's tracking when paddling unloaded, without having to resort to using the rudder.

The Nomad used to be called the Extreme. I guess the marketing guys at CD thought that the original name was too scary. User reviews of both the Extreme and the Nomad can be viewed at https://paddling.com/reviews/product/cu ... s-1-kayak/

Weight - 54 lbs.
Overall Length: 18' 10"
Width: 21.25"
Depth: 14.50"
