Kayak Building Reports

Information about making sea kayaks and other boats

This page is painfully old. It was started in 1994 and was probably last seriously updated in 2000. There are still some good links here along with many broken ones, but it is primarily here for historical purposes.

For more up to date information please visit my Boatbuilding Pages and the Kayak Forum.

This page started out as a collection of information about building boats. It has since evolved to have an emphasis on building wooden kayaks. If you are interested in how to build a kayak, this is the place to bookmark. There is information here about all different methods of making sea kayaks including: strip-built (or wood strip, cedar strip, etc.); stitch-and-glue (or tack-and-tape); traditional (or skin-on-frame, wood and canvas); and some others. I hope you find what you need. I'm always looking for more information to add. If you are building a boat, keep a journal. It may find a home here.
