“Stitch and Glue” Kayak Project

A guy who lives in Bremen, Indiana, decided to build his own kayak (or “yak” as he
calls it) and seems to be having good luck with it so far,
to a South Bend Tribune article
. His “stitch and glue” kit which he used to build his kayak includes:

The wooden frame is African mahogany, covered with fiberglass and several coats of resin, held together by resin
and some intricate wire stitching.

He has hit a number of local kayaking hot spots without sinking so far. One addition he still feels he needs to make
however, according to the article, is to install a cup holder for his coffee. I can dig that.
