Northwest Passage

Plywood construction turns a corner in this new kayak.NORTHWEST PASSAGE has been designed to have all the features of the very best, multi-chine, touring kayak plans and kits on the market, plus a true round bilge without the hassle of building a strip planked hull. She tracks straight as an arrow, and turns with a gentle lean.   This 16’-2” boat is cut from 3 sheets of 4 mm marine grade (BS 1088) plywood and assembled on a simple mold.  Material costs about $450 and she takes about 120 hours to build.  Not for the first-time builder.  More details, lines and pictures at: www.sageboats.com/stock/np.html
