Egret - Skin-on-frame Kayak
Plans - $70.00 
 

Egret is 17 feet long with a 24 inch beam. The frame is fuselage-type construction: keel, stem, stern, bulkheads and stringers. The prototype is covered in heat-shrink Dacron with two coats of clear Hypalon below the sheer, but a variety of fabrics can be used. One option is to sheathe the Dacron with a layer of Xynole and epoxy. This kind of laminated skin is, as far as I know, my own innovation, and it yields an extremely tough yet light and flexible hull.

The plans package includes plans, full-size patterns and a detailed and illustrated 100 page instruction book in PDF format on a CD.
