As an artist I enjoy working with my hands and have started to make skin on frame kayaks. These kayaks are based on traditional Greenland style kayaks. The boats are made using traditional carpentry joinery such as mortise and tenon joints, dowel pegs, and lashings. No screws or glues are used to join the frame. The skin is ballistic nylon coated with an epoxy or polyurethane. The kayaks are fun to paddle and very capable boats.
