Building your own 15' Skin on Frame Kayak is an enjoyable and rewarding way to own a lightweight yet capable boat. We supply the parts with pre-cut frames, stringers, artificial sinews, dacron skin and cockpit combing. And take you through all the steps to build it. There will be demonstrations and discussions covering finishing options and techniques. The structure of this 30 hour class can be shaped by the make-up of the group if they want to adjust dates and timing.
