The New Kayak Shop: More Elegant Wooden Kayaks Anyone Can Build

From coast to coast, home boatbuilders have turned to Chris Kulczycki for everything they needed to know about making their own kayaks from high-grade marine plywood and epoxy. In The Kayak Shop, a long-time popular standard, Kulczycki provided explicit directions and plans for building three sea kayaks: a high-performance single, an expedition single, and a touring double. The New Kayak Shop details three new Kulczycki designs that are more elegant and even more suitable for today's paddlers. The building instructions are also updated, with new sections on paint and varnish, seat construction, power tools, computer programs for amateur designers, and tips on building multi-chine and round-bottom boats. The New Kayak Shop offers the best, most refined designs and building methods in a single, accessible volume.

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.
