I built this nice boat in one week and am very happy with the design this is the first kayak I have used and after building I have gone paddling every chance I get 20 times in the last month. the last pic is from Lake Michigan just before a aircraft style move, a barrel roll. I'll have to figure out how to get control someday. The finished boat with tractor seat and office chair back and home built carbon paddle is 34 pounds. the paddle has solid carbon paddles and foam core handle took a couple days and weighs 26 ozs.

Ganymede can be built with enough room for a large paddler or with a lower deck for smaller paddlers

The 3-panel hull and 3-panel deck make the Ganymede simple to assemble

The prototype of the Ganymede took me about 40 hours to put together from a kit to launching
