Nick Schade and Guillemot Kayaks have been building small boats since some time in the early 1980s. We have been writing books, and teaching classes on building boats for much of that time.

We make money by selling plans for small boats. We provide as much information as possible about how to build these small boats for free, with the hope that you will have the confidence to start building your own small boat and will come to us for the necessary plans.
