BUILDING THE POLE DANCER CEDAR STRIP SEA KAYAK

I wanted to build a Baidarka along the lines of my NORTH STAR, but with less rocker. This project is the result of converting a George Dyson 17 Baidarka from Skin on Frame to a cedar strip construction. I am bigger than George Dyson, so I lengthened the boat by fifteen inches and raised the fore deck to get more foot room. To aid construction I also rounded the chines. My thanks to G.D. for encouraging me to mutilate his plans for the sake of curiosity, he is a great man. ----- Back to Etienne's homepage
