Strip Deck Time!

New on the Building Forum: - 7 hours 20 min ago
Time to start the deck and a few questions .... 1. the first few deck sheer strips ... how do you terminate the ends, at the bow and stern? I'd like to see a few pics of how this should look. 2. I think I can discard the strongback at this point. I have the hull, with the internal forms, ...

Skin-on-Frame Ballistic nylon source in US?

New on the Building Forum: - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 10:16
I'm surprised I can't find any white ballistic nylon anywhere! Everyone seems to only sell black! I'm building some SOF kayaks with a few friends and thought that a bulk purchase might save a few bucks, rather than purchasing the precut length from Skin Boat School. Perhaps not, but I ...

I just got back from this trip http//www.expeditionengineering.com/adventures/kayak-iceland-greenland/ Needless to say it was pretty amazing. Unfortunately the Icelandic Kroner has been going absolutely crazy and the price has gone up significantly for 2018. But if you have the means I would ...

Strip Made a mistake while correcting a mistake

New on the Building Forum: - Fri, 08/11/2017 - 15:58
I was fixing a mistake on my Guillemot build last night when I created another one. I used a heat gun to remove the fiberglass inside both ends of the hull so I could spread the hull to match the deck. The stern end came off fine. I marked the outline of the deck on a piece of plywood, offset the ...

S&G: Staining the Okoume

New on the Building Forum: - Fri, 08/11/2017 - 08:24
Hi All, I'm wondering if there's a good reason not to stain the assembled pieces of the hull or deck respectively. Nick stains a completed hull and a completed deck in the strip videos. Ideally, I'd like to do the same with the S&G boat. The hull will be one stain and the deck will be ...

If you had to list and rank the top 5 design characteristics of a kayak that you would design and use yourself, what would they be? My List (Note that I'm predominately a flatwater kayaker): 1. Lightweight. It can look great and paddle like a dream, but if it weighs 60lbs+ I'm probably not ...

Strip Completed Night Heron

New on the Building Forum: - Sat, 08/05/2017 - 09:57
I finished! Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and tips as I worked on this. Hard to believe that this was a box of wood strips in January. Took a bit longer than I'd planned, but I'm quite happy with the results for a first boat. Now to go out and paddle. https://youtu.be/0r3bos8BpBU
