Canoe Shop by Chris Kulczycki

Book Description

The "Canoe Shop" arms you with complete plans and step-by-step instructions for building three graceful and rugged touring canoes, including a 12-foot double-paddle canoe, a 14-foot solo, and a 16-foot tandem. You needn't be an experienced boatbuilder to get the most out of this book. All that's required are a few common tools and the most basic woodworking skills. The secret is Chris Kulczycki's original LapStitch approach, which combines traditional lapstrake boatbuilding with the simplicity and ease of modern stitch-and-glue construction.With the help of 170 photos and illustrations, Chris walks you through the entire process for all three designs - from reading the plans to painting or varnishing your new canoe. "Recommended reading for anyone contemplating going paddling in a kayak of their own creation." - Sea Kayaker. "This is a very useful book, clearly written, well illustrated, fully explanatory...You will be sold on building your own wood kayak." - "Atlantic Coastal Kayaker".

Stitch-and-glue Boatbuilding by Chris Kulczycki Stitch-and-glue Boatbuilding, Paperback (July 2005)

In Stitch-and-glue boatbuilding the home builder cuts out marine plywood panels to prescribed shapes, then puts them together with wire stitches long enough to glue and seal the seams with epoxy. Once the epoxy cures, the stitches are removed, and the result is a handsome, strong, watertight boat. This book lays out the basic building techniques.

New Kayak Shop by Chris Kulczycki New Kayak Shop, Paperback (November 2000)

Presents plans and instructions for building and finishing three stitch-and-glue designs - a touring kayak, a fast sea kayak, and a flatwater kayak. The designs and simple building methods offer kayakers the experience of paddling an extraordinary boat and also the reward of having built it.
