“Meskousing”, the original Algonquin name for the famous Wisconsin River, provides the inspiration for the reintroduction of a classic duck boat design. We set out to offer the duck hunting enthusiast the classic look and function of duck skiffs that were commonly used on the Mississippi River Flyway and surrounding areas. The lightweight duck hunting kayak, the Backwater, is amazingly stable given its lightweight composite construction materials. Get in, paddle, and experience how modern design and construction techniques can improve on a traditional hunting craft. With a Meskousing Backwater you’ll be able to portage your boat to places heavier boats can’t reach and quietly sneak into honey holes.
The result is the boat you see here. . .
