No Staples Cedar Strip Kayak: Drawing, Lofting and Building a Cedar Strip Wooden Fishing Kayak

No Staples Cedar Strip Kayak: Drawing, Lofting and

I have always wanted to build a cedar strip kayak; from scratch, not from plans, and definitely NOT riddled with staple holes. In this book I take the reader from sketches on paper, through final drawings, lofting to find the dimensions of the kayak, building the frame, finding cedar lumber and cutting and assembling cedar strips, stripping the hull and the deck, fiber-glassing and finishing the kayak. I then add foot braces and a seat and take it for a test float. Many pictures of techniques for holding the strips in place are discussed as well as methods for making tight joints, building the cockpit coaming and seat. Detailed descriptions of jigs and clamping methods are included. Follow the process from concept to sketch to fishing on a placid lake.

Fuselage Frame Boats: A guide to building skin kayaks and canoes

Fuselage Frame Boats: A guide to building skin

Tired of struggling with that heavy plastic kayak? Are you looking for a lightweight boat but not willing to take out a second mortgage to buy it? What if I told you that you could build a boat weighting less than 35 lbs for $300 to $500? You can and in my new book I will show you how. This style was very popular in the 1950's and 1960's and many boat plans appeared in magazines such as Popular Mechanics and Popular Science. Even though it is no longer fashionable in the magazines, the fuselage style of construction is still probably the most cost effective way to build a small boat. Recently I have seen a renewed interest in this type of boat construction. People are rediscovering the advantages of Fuselage style Skin Boats. Fuselage frames boats cost very little to build. A sheet of marine plywood, a lightweight wood such as cedar for the stringers, a few yards of a synthetic fabric for the skin and something to waterproof the skin. Materials for a basic 17' kayak cost around $300. Adding a seat, deck rigging and adjustable footrest would add another $100 to $150 dollars depending on your preferences. For somewhere around $400 you can build a high performance, 30-35 lbs boat. A composite construction canoe or kayak of similar weight would cost thousands of dollars. This book wi...

Cypress Pirogue Plans: A Detailed Guide to Building Your Own Pirogue

Cypress Pirogue Plans: A Detailed Guide to Building

Everyone from Louisiana seems to remember that cypress pirogue boat Pawpaw kept in his barn. Cypress pirogues have since become a relic of the past. Most of them were built out of necessity, so special attention was paid to materials and craftsmanship to ensure a long lasting product. Modern polymers have allowed quality and craftsmanship to be replaced by speed and convenience. This combination usually equates to an inferior product. Unfortunately, the craft of building a Cypress Pirogue is becoming a dying profession. The goal of this book is to preserve that art by providing clear plans on how to build a quality Cypress Pirogue that can be cherished, and passed down for generations.
