For those of you who just can't have too many sources of hand made boat stuff coming into your smart phones and have a softspot in your heart for lo fidelity images that look like they were taken with a Polaroid and stuck to the fridge for 35 years; I've started posting the occasional photo on Instagram. The subject matter will tend to be related to boat building, woodworking, using wooden boats etc. We'll see what develops.
Sometime back in the mid to early 1990's I read an article in WoodenBoat Magazine about building an icebox. I just did a little research and found the article. It was "Building a Proper Icebox" by Jim Brown in WoodenBoat Issue #99. You can read the article below. This is where I first came across the idea that a thick mixture of powder and epoxy has a name.

As of February 2012, the Kindle files should be updated so the issues discussed below no longer apply. If you continue to experience readability issues with you Kindle additions of The Strip-Built Sea Kayak or Building Strip-Planked Boats, please try reloading the books from Amazon. If you see any other problems, please let me know.
Believe it or not, there are still people out there who prefer reading a good, old-fashioned print catalog over going online and browsing through web pages. In fact, you may be one of those people. If so, I have put together a catalog. Due to the scale of my business and the demand for catalogs, it does not make sense to print up 20,000 copies at a time. Instead I have found a print-on-demand publisher who does a great job at a reasonable price. MagCloud was developed by Hewlett-Packard to print magazines.
For those of you who have caught the Facebook bug, I've put up a Guillemot Kayaks Page. I've posted a few videos and will maintain an events calendar there. Feel free to become a fan and post comments.
I have an excellent Canoe and Kayak Trailer for sale. It was made by MO Trailers and it is their Long Ranger model. While I really like this trailer it is too heavy for my poor little Subaru to tow. The trailer is extremely well built with heavy gauge welded steel construction, you can climb all over it load boats.
There is a whole community of people out in cyberspace who are into kayaks and other small boats, either building them or using them or even just admiring them. Below are some links to a few places where you can get to know some of these people.
