2015 Summer Program

Build a very stable flat water 12' Kudzu type kayak. Build it using a fuselage frame design. Learn to skin the kayak with synthetic fabric and apply a waterproof finish. A recreational kayak perfect for fishing, paddling or photography.

This is a two week course. Continued from the prior week (June 29 - July 3), the second week's activities will depend on how fast the class moves in the first week. It is likely that we'll be finishing the skinning week 2 and then painting it. We will make a paddle as well.
Please note, ages 12 and up only.
