    Never tried building one. I would think you could buy a demo or used yak as cheap as you could make one (considering time and money).

    Chris, don't tell us that you forgot about the kayak that you've been letting your 3rd cousin on your mothers side been using for awhile now. :wink:

    Wow, Chris, those stich-and-glue projects can mount up quickly to a lot of moolah too. The cost of good glass and epoxy alone can make your head swim, and I ain't talkin' 'bout the smell either! :eek:oooh:

    I have been collecting the tools (just got a nice hand plane) for building a strip-built Guillemot kayak. This would be a dream come true to build such a lovely craft.

    On the other hand, I am preparing myself to dump more money into the investment than I did on my Heritage Redfish 12' Angler, by about double.

    Keep us informed of your progress. It sure sounds like a lot of fun! :wink:

    gonna have to do a little more shoppin i guess didnt realize they could be found so cheap most of what i saw online was crowdin $1000 or better.
    didnt really want to build one anyway just thought i could do it on a shoestring.
