Racing Kayak Plans

Complete plans to build your own lightweight wooden racing kayak. Wood is an excellent material for building lightweight fast boats. It provides a great deal of stiffness so your energy is not wasted in flexing the hull. Protected with a thin layer of fiberglass cloth inside and out the resulting hull is rigid and strong.

Weights of under 30 pounds for a 20 foot long racing kayak are achievable with strength and durability competitive and often better than carbon fiber.
