The kayak buiding manual is included with all plan orders, but you can also download the manual on it's own. It has over 60 pages of information including almost 200 colour photos. The manual is in PDF format which saves on printing and shipping costs making it a valuable resource for all builders. If you order a set of plans later, purchase a plans set without the manual and all other files pertaining to the chosen kayak design will be sent. NOTE: A link to the download will be sent once approved so please do not make several attempts.
