Over recent weeks I’ve been building a stitch and glue Night Heron kayak designed by Nick Schade from Guillemot Kayaks. There’s a lot I’ve learnt along the way so I thought it useful to post up some notes on the blog.
As a quick background to the project, the Night Heron family of kayaks are 5.5m ocean going sea kayaks available in plywood hard chin form or strip form. Check out the web site as there’s a lot more information there. Of special use when building is the Kayak Building Bulletin Board hosted by Guillemot. This is a great resource.
