This cedar strip kayak model is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, using a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are typically secured to each other with glue or nails. The roughly covered hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass before removing it from the forms.
The inside is then smoothed and similarly reinforced. Included with this Kayak model is a 2 bladed wooden kayak paddle and a wood stand.
