Information about boat building techniques
Hybrid construction could mean any method of building a boat which combines two different building techniques.
This method of building boats use pre-cut plywood panels that are "stitched" together along their joints and then glued. The shape of the boat is determined by the shape of the panels. The 2 dimensional flat panels are bent when they are stitched along their curved edges to the adjoining panel. The shape of the curve between the adjoining panels determines the 3 dimensional shape of the finished boat.
Video Four in a series documenting the making of a strip built kayak. In the last episode I made the inner stems out of pine and tapered and installed the sheer strips.
Video 3 in the series documenting the making of a strip-built kayak. Making the inner stems and installing the first strips
Video 2 in a series documenting my build of the Petrel Play. In this episode I cut the strips and set up the forms.
This is the introduction to my series of videos documenting my building of a strip built Petrel Play. In this episode I describe the design, how I came up with it and what makes it special.
I've just started a new series of videos documenting the Petrel Play build I did last fall. I will be covering the whole process from buying the wood through launching the kayak. I hope to be able to release a new video every week or so. Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube page so you are kept up to date on the latest releases.
