Meet at the Beach 2017

Jun 3 2017 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.

Full size plans to build the Petrel "Play" recreational sea kayak. The Petrel Play is a strip-built kayak that you can build yourself with these full-size drawings.

The Petrel Play fits in a cross-over space between recreational kayaks and sea kayaks. It is stable and roomy enough for novice paddlers and those who enjoy relaxing paddles in sheltered water. It is also responsive and sea worthy enough to go out in rough open water to surf or play in tide races.

Full size plans to build the elegant microBootlegger Sport recreational sea kayak.

Complete construction drawing with each form drawn out individually and at full size. Units are in both English and Metric, but because most of the design is documented as full size patterns there is very little measuring. Cut out the patterns and trace or just cut out around the lines.

My book "Building Strip-Planked Boats" is recommended as the instructions.

The Noank Pulling Boat is an 18' x 36" [5.5m x 91cm] sliding seat rowing boat suitable for open water travel. It has two large flotation chambers that can store a massive amount of gear if you should wish to go for an expedition. 

This is an efficient boat with nice glide, secure in rough water and a joy to row.
