How to build a Kayak in a day

First you need a good plan. This skin on frame plan is 11 feet long and is sized to fit a paddler up to 100 pounds.

With some spray adhesive, glue down the  shapes then cut out the forms, next rip some 3/4" by 3/4" strips.

Start by glueing and screwing on the keel, gunnels and deck strips to the forms.

Next whip up the ends, any shape will do.

How many clamps does it take to glue a coaming together?
The correct answer is "All of them".

And we are done!
