This is a Wood Duck kayak kit (page 4). The optional Sapele deck is the darker timber on the right. Premium epoxy, fiberglass, seat, backband, footbraces, and deck rigging are included in all of our kayak kits.

LD A BOAT! How to pick a project Here’s something we hear a lot: “Okay, direct me to the boat that’s easiest to build, and I’ll start with that one.” Well that’s tricky, because all of our boats are easy to build. If you’re in a real hurry, the smaller stitch-and-glue kayaks go a little quicker. A tour de force cedar strip kayak will require many hours and some sharp woodworking tools. But if you’re patient and willing to ask questions, none of the boats in this catalogue are beyond the reach of a first-time boatbuilder. We have just three requirements of our boat designers: Great performance, great looks, and ease of construction.
