This Wood Duck 12 kayak is the first boat that Rich Schmidt ever built. He built it for his wife and launched it in early spring. Rich started with a kit from Chesapeake Light Craft. His wife enjoys paddling the kayak near their Maryland home. Rich has already started on his next boat, a CLC Shearwater Sport.
Paul Newman of Melbourne, Australia, just built a Wood Duck 12 Kayak from a Chesapeake Light Craft kit. He spent about 12 months on the stitch-and-glue plywood construction. The finished 12' boat weighs just 40 lbs. Paul will paddle his Wood Duck on the many waterways of his state of Victoria. Kits are available from www.clcboats.com.
