Kayak Design log

 

I'll be making a presentation at the Connyak April meeting. I've been asked to talk about kayak design. The goal is to help people who want to design their own boat as well as give guidance to people who are buying boats and want to have some tools for evaluating designs

Every year since 1998 Chesapeake Light Craft has been hosting a gathering of small boat builders. On Friday they have an open house at their shop with demonstrations and a cookout. On Saturday it is on a beach on Chesapeake Bay.

I'll be bringing some boats down and giving some sort of demonstration this year. Come visit, bring a boat if you've got one, or just test boats you may want to build.

 

Location: Chesapeake Light Craft, Annapolis, MD

Kayak Builders Gathering

This annual gathering of kayak builders and people interested in home-built kayaks has been going for over 10 years. People drive from all around the North East to see what people have made over the winter. This is a good chance to see finished boats in person. The other boat builders are often kind enough to allow you to sit in and paddle the boats they built, giving you a chance to test before you build.

 

Location: Bluff Point State Park, Groton, CT

In this class we will build two of Nick's popular boat designs. Each boat is quite different cedar strip boats. Nymph is a sweet little double paddle canoe. It is lightweight and fun to paddle. The Night Heron is an elegant sea kayak. These two boats will give people a well rounded experience in using the woodstrip method of constructing small boats.
