    If you need a dead line to finish your boat, there isn't a better reason to get it done than to show it to other builders at the Meet at the Beach. For years kayak builders have been meeting at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT to see each other's work and exchange ideas and techniques.

  • Strip Built Boats Workshop @ CVSW

    May 2 2009 9:00 am
    May 2 2009 5:00 pm

    The process of strip building canoes and kayaks is generally considered to be the best for small light-weight craft. It is also undoubtedly the nicest looking construction method for this sized boat. In this one day demonstration of the strip-building technique for making a kayak or other small boat, professional kayak builder and designer, Nick Schade, will outline the steps to build your own boat. Topics shown will include basic stripping and staple-free construction, fairing the hull and fiber-glassing. Participants will be free to ask questions.
