This beautiful Kayak is handcrafted from beautiful strips of 100% Canadian western red cedar wood (a very rare, soft yet very strong timber). The hull is then covered with an invisible layer of clear fiber glass cloth which is bonded with watertight clear epoxy resin and is then coated with marine varnish. This combination of fiberglass & epoxy is very strong & abrasion resistant and completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood shows through while protecting it for generations.
This Cedar-strip Kayak is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, using a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are secured to each other with epoxy glue. The roughly covered hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass cloth & epoxy before removing it from the forms. The inside is then smoothed and similarly reinforced.
This Kayak is lightweight and weighs only 48 pounds, one person can easily carry the Kayak. When you are not out enjoying the Kayak on the water, the Kayak with it's contrasting purple and white stripes can make a striking display. Included with this cedar wood strip Kayak boat is a show grade wooden kayak paddle and a kayak slip cover to protect it during transportation and from the sun.
