Charles Leach's Guillemot "L"


Charles Leach's Guillemot "L"

The Guillemot "L" was my second kayak building effort. This is Uncle Nicks Guillemot design for the "L"arger kayaker. This time I bought Nick's plans instead of lofting the forms myself. She's made of bead and cove strips from locally bought lumber, which I milled in my garage. The hull is WRC and the deck is white pine and black walnut. The sheer strips and keel/stems are walnut also. Maiden voyage was on the Gunpowder River in Baltimore.
