New here, but kayaking many years with my Heritage SeaDart XL (15 ft f/glass from the mid 90s).
A buddy of mine acquired a Dirigo a few weeks ago and I read (here) all about folks fondness for their Dirigo 17s.
This Dirigo matches the description of the 17s but is approx. 10.5 feet; has 'DIRIGO' logo, riveted teak rail, no footpegs or rudder, and a hand-etched serial number (D1G10205K686 ? the '1's might be 'I's) on the stern.
Can anyone shed some light on this boat ? Can the date/year of manufacture be determined from the serial number ?
Thanks and best regards, Andrew
