Building boats

Recommended Posts

Well, the time to build a boat is getting closer. In fact, the idea of building a boat is what led me to kayaking in the first place. I've decided on the type of boat as well as the necessary plans, and I'm now looking for space. As this is a big project, I'm curious if there are any others out there who have built a wood kayak using strips. If you care to share any advice regarding pitfalls to avoid, success stories, etc., that would be great. Or, if you want to commiserate regarding things that have gone awry, I'm sure I'll soon have plenty to share!

Hi Kevin,

A number of us have gone through this process. I found many helpful builders out there willing to share advice and their experiences. Feel free to email me at michaelewilliams@verizon.net and I will send on some site references and/or my phone number for those times when a quick call might be helpful.
