Canoe Plans. Pulling Boats. Kayak Plans.
Hi Rob Here are some photos of the completed SS. I used the Mystic Star featured on your website as a guide to the layout of the red and yellow cedar. I have included some shots of some of the details, including the wild rose onlays.

This site is dedicated to exquisite wooden kayaks. Here beauty meets performance, and traditional boatbuilding meets Hi-Tech. Since the studio and home are in a remote location, we generate our power with a micro hydro plant powered by a creek. Hand tools are used for all but the wood strip milling and sanding.
What is Wood Strip Construction? The result is a high tech structure called the " composite sandwich core ". Today, the use of cores - both foam and wood - span the spectrum from fast rowing shells to competition yachts and even power racers.
Bear Mountain Boats sells professional building plans for woodstrip canoes, kayaks, and small boats, and offers free advice and support to home boat builders. Click photo above for additional images. Welcome to Fairhope Boat Company.
After successfully building the Abenaki canoeI've decided that it's time to build another cedar-strip boat - this time a kayak. The ideal kayak design for me has the same traits as the canoe that I built: simple lines, ideal for poking around lakes and rivers, and it's stable. After researching a number of different designs, I finally decided to build the Great Auk 14 from Guillemot Kayaks.
This is video series is documenting my process of converting the idea of a new kayak into a physical vessel and taking it out on to the water. I hope you will find this series inspirational and maybe even decide to build your own small boat. The plans for this kayak and others like it are available at Guillemot-Kayaks. Once the forms are completely covered with the wood strips the surface is smoothed and then covered with fiberglass cloth.
Outstanding Classic Canoe designs reflecting their native heritage. If you love to paddle. These are the ultimate boats for you.
Although books on strip building canoes abound, this is among the first to adapt the technique to crafting attractive, functional kayaks. Using high-quality, computer-generated illustrations and photographs to explain key techniques, the book provides complete plans and measurements for three different kayaks: 1 A simple solo craft for beginners, 2 A high-performance solo kayak for intermediate paddlers, and 3 A tandem design for two paddlers. With its easy-to-follow guidance and instructions, The Strip-Built Sea Kayak makes top-notch kayaks accessible to budget-minded paddlers.
