You are hereGuillemot / Guillemot
The flagship of the line
I just finished my second kayak for my musically inclined wife. It has a two meter treble cleff on the deck. The red wood was used first and then I filled in the tan wood around it. It was a good challenge.
I live in Indonesia where I work as a pilot for a non profit organization. The far boat is a common boat seen on the lake, the middle kayak is the new one for my wife, and the close kayak is the first one I built 4 years ago.
This kayak was made from one lightning hit white cedar. I'm finishing up another kayak now with alot of curved walnut and dark red cedar strips in it, along with the remainder of the white cedar. Do I hear MUSEUM PIECE! It'll be tricked out with a dozen hand painted Guillemots. It's so stunning, I can't even believe my brother and I are building it. Pics up soon. Nick sure designs unbelieveble kayaks,and since the forms are already up, I'll just continue to build the Guillemots, although I'd like to eventually build an Expedition or Mystery.

I used the wood from a lightning hit Atlantic White Cedar. I milled the wood and cut the strips on a table saw, then built the Guillemot exclusively from this tree. I raced it once in a 2 mile race and won in my category, over 13 ft.35yrs.of age or over etc. It gets alot of compliments. I'm almost finished my 2nd Gil as we speak. It has alot of black walnut in it! It'll be tricked out with hand painted life size Guillemots.
