I'm putting up an album of building a 1/4 full size prototype model of a stitch and glue sit-on-top kayak. The build uses the same approach as would be for a full scale kayak but is much quicker and easier to accomplish! the gallery: http://www.westcoastpaddler.com/building/displayimage.php?album=16&pos=0 Solitude is 15'-0" x 27": I had a great relaxing time building this on 4 or 5 evenings at the kitchen table over christmas. A hot chocolate or nice cold beer was never very far away and i could take a break whenever i wished - a fun build. .
