For the past few years, my friends Greg Paquin and Paula Reigel (Owners of Kayak Waveology) have organized the Autumn Gales rough water sea kayaking symposium in my home waters of Fishers Island Sound. Greg is a BCU coach and he brings in other coaches from locally and abroad. This year he had Nigel Dennis, Peter Jones, and Harry Whalen from the UK as well as Carl Ladd from Rhode Island as well as local guides such as my friend Carl Tjerandsen. I was invited in the local guide capacity.

An Overview Video of the Strip-Planked Boat Building Process
This video was taken over the course of 6 days at the WoodenBoat School in Brookline, Maine. It shows the process of building a cedar strip Nymph canoe.
A seat is a pretty basic need in a kayak. A good seat is the key to comfortably sitting in a kayak for hours at a time. The seat is the primary contact between the paddler and the boat and as such it is the primary tool for controling the kayak.
I'm using 4 ounce glass on the inside.
