Kayak Videos

Over the past few years, I have been taking video footage of kayak building  and as time permits, I have been putting together some clips of the various stages, steps and processes as outlined in my building manual.  The videos will help to make your building experience easier and may help to reduce some of the apprehension for first time builders.  Videos are of different kayaks in various stages of building.
