This is the second woodstrip kayak I have built, a Guillemot Double. It took about 150 hours and is built of Western Red Cedar. I also have a picture of the first paddle I built (more are under construction) that somebody requested to see closer on the first kayak I built. It is built of cedar and walnut. The pictures are on Lake Michigan near Traverse City, MI. I am currently attempting to sell kayaks that I build, if any LJs don’t have the time to build one, but would like a one of a kind kayak…

Real nice. I’m building a Guillemot single right now, It’s my first. I’m at the point of glassing the outside and getting it off the form to clean up and glass the inside. Care to share your sources for cloth and resin and how much cloth you used compared to what is called for on the material’s list? I figure I have quite a bit more time in mine but a lot of that was standing around waiting on glue to set and figuring out what to do next. I can see that the second one would go faster. I do have my progress documented on this site.

Beautiful. I’d love to build one to use on our lake up here in Stanton or down by my family in Sawyer some time.

very nice!
I’ve been thinking about a paddle design. That one shows that they dont need to be perfectly symmetrical.
Thanks for the inspiration!
