In this class we will build two of Nick's popular boat designs. Each boat is quite different cedar strip boats. Nymph is a sweet little double paddle canoe. It is lightweight and fun to paddle. The Night Heron is an elegant sea kayak. These two boats will give people a well rounded experience in using the woodstrip method of constructing small boats.

Strip Built Boat Classes

Building a woodstrip kayakStrip planked boats are beautiful lightweight and rugged. The building process involves bending long, narrow, thin flexible strips of wood around a building form and fitting these strips together with other strips. It is a versatile boatbuilding technique that can be used for small, lightweight solo boats and scaled up to full sized yachts.

Others just can't seem to find the time. Some don't have the tools. With expert guidance, a well equipped workshop, anyone can build a beautiful boat in a very short time.
