I am considering building a wood-strip Kayak. I have been hesitant because of the cost of Cedar. I am learning that Pine could be used instead. Are there major draw backs for using pine?
I am considering the High Capacity Great Auk. I am 6'6", 265lbs. I am in decent shape and don't want a boat that is going to be too cramped or tippy. I am a novice paddler.
Any comments on above appreciated.
