Following is an assortment of kayak plans. These kayak plans are not for the novice woodworker. Building a kayak requires a good knowledge and a lot of experience in woodcraft techniques. For those that are competent woodworkers, the successful completion of the construction of a kayak can be a great ego trip!
Always read the kayak plans carefully and make sure that there is enough information provided for you to be able to complete the project - before you invest in materials. Some of the plans are excellent, giving a great deal of instruction in text, pictures and drawings while other plans are only drawings and still others are only sketches.
