Kit built, stitch and glue construction. What a wonderful boat. I couldn't be more pleased with my creation. The kayak is light (45 lbs) took me 6 weeks to build, has a furniture quality mahoney finish. I tend to attract a lot of attention when I have on the car and in the water.
Not only does it look good, it tracks straight, has great initial and secondary stability, GLIDES over the water with very little effort, has large hatch covers, rigging is solidly attached to the deck and turns on a dime! It does scratch easily when I disembark on a rocky beach. (light sanding and a quick coat of varnish gets rid of the scratch).
The kayak is relatively easy to assemble with simple tools and some patience. Highly reccomended!
