New Kayak Shop by Chris Kulczycki

Book Description

"Recommended reading for anyone contemplating going paddling in a kayak of their own creation." - Sea Kayaker, on "The Kayak Shop". With the publication of "The Kayak Shop" in 1993, master builder, Chris Kulczycki helped launch a popular revolution in kayak building. But he didn't stop there. Kulczycki's boats just keep getting better - easier to build and more beautiful to behold. In "The New Kayak Shop" paddlers will find plans and instructions for building and finishing three new stitch-and-glue designs - a touring kayak, a fast sea kayak, and a flatwater kayak - that are even more elegant, durable, and functional than their forerunners. Chris Kulczycki's highly refined designs and simple building methods offer kayakers not only the experience of paddling an extraordinary boat but also the rare reward of having built it.Praise for "The Kayak Shop" includes: "Here's the book you've been looking for ...If you're considering building your own kayak, before you do anything else - buy this book!" - Florida Sea Kayaking Association. "This book should prove to be one of the standards on boat building that will be on every small boat builder's bookshelf." - "Upper Midwest Kayak Touring News". "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". "Chris Kulczycki unfolds the basics and nitty-gritty of design, materials, tools, and plans ...Should encourage a lot of people to make the go-for-it decision." - Southern Maine Sea Kayaking Network.

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.
