Petrel Play Kayak

The boat is stitch and glue construction from a kit produced by Chesapeake Light Craft. The red pieces were stained prior to construction in order to highlight the “artistic” puzzle joints that designer Nick Schade uses. The build took 59 work days/134.5 hours spread over a five month period. I will primarily use the kayak to explore the many streams/springs located in the Ocala National Forest, with occasional trips to the beach to try surfing.
