Matt Langenfeld


Launched in 2003, JEM Watercraft aka Matt Langenfeld has been turning out canoes and kayaks - and plans for them - ever since. With designs inspired by Verlen Kruger, and refined by his own experiences on the water, Matt has dozens of field tested designs under his belt. It doesn't hurt that he is an Engineer with an MBA.

Matt draws inspiration from a statistics professor he had in college when writing the detailed instructions in his plans. "He wrote the very book we used in class.", Matt relates. "His book was a total hand-holding experience that took you through the calculations and software step by step in simple-to-understand language. Learning in this manner made that tough subject easy and a little enjoyable." When you buy a set of his plans, you will see how Matt took this experience to heart.
