The process of strip building canoes and kayaks is generally considered to be the best for small light-weight craft. It is also undoubtedly the nicest looking construction method for this sized boat. In this one day demonstration of the strip-building technique for making a kayak or other small boat, professional kayak builder and designer, Nick Schade, will outline the steps to build your own boat. Topics shown will include basic stripping and staple-free construction, fairing the hull and fiber-glassing. Participants will be free to ask questions. For anyone considering building a small boat, this workshop will be a good opportunity to learn more about the process.
