Guillemot Sea Kayak

Lofting the plans from Nick Schade's book, The Strip-Built Sea Kayak, Kevin Rautio built this 17′ Guillemot Sea Kayak from Spanish cedar. He spent about a year building it, including the lofting and scratch-building everything, even the strips. Kevin paddles the waters near his home in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts. Nick Schade’s book is available from The WoodenBoat Store, www.woodenboatstore.com.
