Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
Has anyone built this design? How did it go? What did you do for the
top (front and back radius for thwarts)? Coaming? I know this a lot of
questions and I may just copy instructions from a Chesapeake Light
Craft 16' design... but any clues would be helpful. Any one have Doug
Garmon's e-mail? Anyone know were to get marine grade plywood in
west Michigan? Jeff.
Doug's Boat Page seems to be 'up there' but no one is minding the store. Fair enough... Here is a link Pygmy Kayak Construction illustrating a Pygmy Kayak Kit building sequence including the layup of the combing.
Marine Grade Plywood? Best source we know of is: Edensaw Woods, Ltd. They are on the net at www.edensaw.com. If you scout the shipping size rules of UPS, Edensaw will cut panels to size (not to shape)and ship UPS. Works out you receive high quality boat building material and it beats the high-unpredictable-truck shipping rate for large panels of ply.
