Hi everyone,

I thought I'd share my new(ish) video series. I've been waiting until I had a few video's made and the boat was nearing completion.

I'm simply calling the series "How to Build a Kayak"

The boat is the Shearwater 17. She's a Stitch & Glue hull with a Cedar Strip deck, so its an interesting boat to build. I started building her in September and honestly she should be finished by now if not for all of life's other distractions.

The stitch & glue was easy to put together and glass, and I've spent a little bit more time stripping the deck then I usually do when stripping a boat. I thought to create a nice pattern would be worth it for this boat since I'll be looking down on the deck a bit more than I would normally in a canoe.

Here is the first video in the series.

I hope you enjoy it.
