    Frame

    Pouch carefully crafts the frame for the Touring Double RZ96 of wood. The design balances

    • Strength
      This boat will be with you through thick and thin for many years.
    • Resilience
      The frame absorbs punishment with ease.
    • Flexibility
      Just the right degree of overall flexibility in an otherwise stiff hull contributes to the boats seaworthiness and your safety.
    • Light Weight
      You carry less, the boat carries more.
    • Ease of Maintenance
      The highly developed factory finish on all wooden components ensures that your time will be spent paddling - unless you like to varnish.

    • Functionality
      Good design and DEPLOYMENT of high quality fittings ensure ease of assembly and secure connections.

    background information

    Skin

    Pouch builds the skin for the Touring Double RZ96 of synthetic materials for the hull and traditional high quality canvas for the deck. Construction comprises

    • Strength
      Both hull and deck material have enourmous puncture resistance.
    • Durability
      The PVC and the Hypalon hulls are completely rot proof. The canvas deck is proofed and will serve for decades if dried out regularly.
    • Abrasion Resistance
      The boat absorbs punishment with ease.
    • Flexibility
      The skin "gives" under impact. This prevents damage and contributes to "seaworthiness".
    • Ease of Maintenance
      Deck and the hull materials are practically maintenance free. You are free to paddle.
