I have always wanted to build a kayak or canoe. After reading this book, I had the knowledge to start the building process. This book covers all the aspects of building a kayak. It is geared towards first time builders and explains how to build the boat in terms you can understand. After reading this book, I ordered my plans for a kayak and I have just about completed the hull in only 1.5 weeks of reading the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about building a strip built boat or kayak. Dale
