The kit comes with a generous bundle of carefully selected pine wood strips, a set CNC (computer cut) 1/4″ plywood forms that are set up on a numbered strong back to create a form of the kayak. The strips are glued edge to edge around the forms, creating a real kayak. This process is just like building the full sized kayak, so you’ll be well versed in wood strip construction after building this kit. Basic knowledge of hand wood working tools is all that’s needed. Because of it’s rugged and quality materials, the model will last for generations. The kit also comes with a special selection of wide pine strips with varying lengths of rich red cedar strips to add design to your deck. Plus two plaster cast seats which can be carved and painted any color, along with webbing, imitation buckles, black braided cord, brass brads, a two piece mahogany plywood coaming for the cockpit, two thin ply hatch covers, compass rose decal, DVD with assembly video on this kayak along with step by step instructions, scale paddle kit and a wall mount for that finishing touch.
