Hammer

Post by mattja99 »

I have an opportunity to pick up an old Hammer frame for a few hundred dollars. I am a little apprehensive as they are out of production, but I have come across a few posts on the net where guys used Wyland hulls or maybe even Klepper for replacements. Anyone have any insight?

Thanks,
Matt

My brother has enjoyed using the Hammer Seewolf double that we acquired from a member of the forum last year (or was it the year before). He has opted for patching the hull rather than replacing it. But like you, I took comfort from the idea one might be able to get a replacement from Wayland one day, if necessary.

You may want to check out Markus Heise or ABC Sattlerei for a replacement skin for your Hammer kayak.

For me, there are several features which make these boats amazing. From the pre-tension built into the structure at the bow strut to the z-folding keel then there's the that cleaver way the keel cross-beam latch assembly made the whole assembly quite the challenging experience (sans instructions of course) to figure out! Somewhere there's a complete NOS 1964 Hammer - Zweier complete with a rudder paddles and original gaff rig. Matched with a Zündapp Delphin would be valid proof that dimensional rifts do exist. Crazy?
