I was thinking about building a Sit On Top Kayak and came up with using a solid block of compressed and laminated block of Balsa Wood. Purchase the block then borrow a friends yack for a pattern then carve out the new one and coat it in clear resin, the bow, keel, and stern should be a tougher material than balsa wood. With the right stain it sure would be nice looking and balsa wood should ride the water good. It probably cost too much but what do you all think? Personally Id like a Kayak designed for a big guy and a trolling motor one of the new remote control motors, fishing and duck hunting the Louisiana and Texas coast any suggestions?
