Today, my drawing is a Sit-On-Top Kayak. It is inspired by a model made by Wilderness Systems.

The sit-on-top kayak is an alternative to the enclosed kind. The advantage of the sit-on-top is that it is self-bailing. If water gets into the hull, water simply exits through the scupper holes. This is especially useful when kayaking the surf where waves can get over two feet high.

In the 17th century, there is a story in the high seas, where many a sailor’s life was swept away, not by the hurricanes and white squalls of the angry oceans, but rather, by a great sea creature, known as the Giant Octopus.

As night falls, the monster’s tentacles slithers aboard the Buccaneer, capturing every sailor, one by one, as a scrumptious morsel. Even the courageous captain defends his honor, with scimitar in hand, only to go down with his ship.

This is an updated version 2 of my illustration.
