Guillemot of Finland


Guillemot of Finland

Hi there Nick !

Thank You for inspiring us with the beautiful kayak designs. The kayaks
that You have designed, are very appealing to us because of the slender
lines . We decided to built the Guillemot-design, because we thought that
it was the best and the most appealing to our eyes. The materials that we
used was fir, thermotreated aspen and mahogany.
The built took about 6 months and about 140-180 hours of work .
We used the facilities of an old paint shop, that was perfect for
building two kayaks in it. First kayak was completed 2005 and last 2009.
The building of kayaks was very interesting, relaxing and a good counterbalance to our main work, and the book helped a lot.

Thank You again. Best wishes, Jukka Viitanen and Hannu Rinta-Marttila
