Kayaks are growing in popularity as a fun, low-impact way to explore rivers or paddle on local waters. Combining easy-to-follow instructions with 472 colour photographs, Kayaks You Can Build takes the reader, step-by-step, through the entire construction cycle of building a plywood kayak. This simple construction process demands neither special skills nor a wood-working shop. This book includes: - Short history of the kayak - Choose the right kayak for your needs and skill level - Setting up your work area and how to build a work table and cradle forms - Details of all the necessary tools, materials and supplies - Tricks of the trade - Laying fibreglass cloth - Minimising exposure to toxic fumes and dust - Avoiding and correcting mistakes - Popular kayak kits - Ted Moores is the bestselling author of Canoecraft. In 1972, Moores pioneered the woodstrip / epoxy boatbuilding system for canoes and, since then, has promoted the fine art of wooden-canoe and kayak construction. Greg Rossel builds and repairs small wooden boats and is an instructor at the Wooden Boat School in Maine. The definitive book for kayak builders. Drawing on more than thirty years of boatbuilding and teaching experience, it enables the first-time builder to assemble a kayak with truly professional results. 472 clear step-by-step colour photographs show you every stage of construction.Ver Descripción del producto

However, given plans or a kit this book will provide basic and detailed techniques, and special tricks that will help you build a very good boat. I will read it very carefully before building my next.
The organization makes it especially useful as a reference book. A little over half of it covers the techniques for building and finishing stitch and glue kayaks. The remaining portion is a step by step log of the actual building of Chesapeake Mill Creek, a Pygmy Coho, and a Bear Mountain Enterprise. The Enterprise is a hybrid with a stitch and glue hull and strip built deck.
The authors are very much on appearance rather than performance. There is much detail on varnishing. Note that the three kayaks built here do not have a hatch on the front deck (They didn't want to clutter their beautiful staining and varnishing.)so don't look for guidance on laying out your deck rigging.
This is by far the most complete reference I've seen on this type of boat construction.
