Little Auk Wood Kayak
Building Plans for the Little Auk Kayak
Strip Built Little Auk

This little boat is designed for someone who wants a light, easy to handle Recreational Kayak of distinctive character. Its small size makes it easy to put on the roof of a car or on deck of yacht and transport it to explore your favorite lake or harbor. Once there, you will be able to gunkhole into places inaccessible by any other boat. Its stability assures that it is not an adventure just sitting in her. I also have made an 11 ft long version of this boat for a customer who wanted something slightly longer. The 10 foot long version is best suited to people who need a truly small boat.

The plans include the lines for both versions.
