Meet at the Beach

Jun 2 2018 10:00 am

Once again we will be gathering at Bluff Point. For more years than I care to remember wooden kayak enthusiasts have met at the beach at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, Connecticut. We will be gathering again this year. Come see what builders have made over the winter. Test paddle kayaks that you are interested in building. Talk to other people who like wooden kayaks.

Kayak Forum Issues


 Resolved: I've upgraded the Kayak Forum to a new system.

I am currently experiencing technical issues with the Bulletin Board system.

You want a kayak? Just Build It. We aren't a big shoe company. We don't have factories around the world, full of women stitching together kayaks. If you want an exceptional kayak, you want to build it yourself.

Let the world know you are a kayak builder with this Black Hanes Beeft-T with Kayak - Just Build It and a Petrel kayak across the front and across the back.

Launching the Skin on Frame microBootlegger Sport

I found a break in the ice on the river by my house to drop the kayak in for a quick trial. There was not enough open water for real sea trials, but I was able to determine that the boat floats upright and is comfortable to sit in and has no obvious bad behaviors. I'll be doing more indepth sea trials later.
