Nice! Did you double glass the outside of the hull? Is that standard procedure, or will this one see rough duty? I bought your book "the Strip-Built Sea Kayak" and if I can figure out lofting the offsets, I'm going to try to build the Great Auk. Wish I had fullsize form patterns. Math and graphing are not my strong suit.

I got to paddle Joy's Petrel briefly when some ConnYak'rs came down to Emerald Isle one summer. I remember it surfed well, but wish I had more time in one. Without all the sanding.
Nick Schade (12 days ago)
Joy and Dennis like to make their boats with low decks. I think Joy's lowered the sheer a bit and then made a low deck on top of that. So the overall volume of her boat is down a fair bit from the standard. For her size, it works well, but I think it would probably surf a bit better with a little more flotation. But, I'm glad you liked it.

Would you consider selling yours or making another one...
Nick Schade (14 days ago)
This was a custom built kayak for a client. I am happy to build one of you. Visit http://woodenkayaks.com for more information.

To paraphrase ( Have you gave notice to a true Craftsman ? He himself will station himself before Kings ) from scripture. The inner joy of performing any task as a craftsman I believe supersedes any monetary gain . Great video without a doubt.

How much would one of these cost to buy? Where can I get one?
Nick Schade (1 month ago)
I build these boats for clients. It generally takes 4 to 6 months to build. If you are interested, contact me directly. We can talk about what design would be appropriate and how much it would cost.
Per Zakarias Sørensen (1 month ago)
It's art, there is usfull, one day I will try to do it - the same- build my own "boat".

How long did this take and how much did materials cost? Thinking of trying to make something like this
Nick Schade (1 month ago)
This boat took about 3 months to build. A kit costs about $1,400 but if you gather all your own materials and prepare them yourself, you may be able to do it for less than half that.
Стройка, а не пилотаж!

is it unusual not to use a cove and bead on the edges of the cedar?
Nick Schade (4 months ago)
Cove and bead is more common, especially with canoes, but fore smaller boats like kayaks many people are moving away from the cove and bead strips.

Wondering why the strips are not cove and bead and why the use of vinyl glue rather than an epoxy?
Nick Schade (5 months ago)
I can get tighter joints by beveling the strips to fit. The PVA glue is strong, easy to use, inexpensive, not toxic, and quick setting. It does not need to be waterproof as it will never get wet.
