Here is a woodstrip kayak project I did a few years back. It’s built out of 1/4” x 3/4” red cedar, spanish cedar, pine and being in Oregon I had to work in some douglas fir woodstrips shaded over a set of forms. The recessed hatch areas were shaped from blocks of red cedar and the coaming rim around the cockpit is out of carbon fiber. After hours of long board sanding to get the hull and deck faired, the whole thing was fiberglassed over inside and out. The project took 300-400 hours. I was very rewarding when I got it on the water and found out it paddles as good as it looks.
