This book offers complete plans and instructions for building a lashed-frame, fabric-covered Greenland kayak. The building method is derived from traditional Inuit methods but incorporates a number of techniques designed to ensure that a novice builder can produce a strong, properly shaped hull.Few kayaks can match the Greenland kayak for simplicity, elegance, and performance. Its low profile keeps windage to a minimum, and its narrow beam makes it fast and well behaved in rough water. The hard chines carve through turns at the tip of the paddler s hips. It is the Ferrari of kayaks lively, high-performing, and versatile, but requiring a skilled, attentive paddler. The kayak design set forth in this book is scalable to fit the builder, and there is also a low-volume version that is especially suited for Eskimo rolling.Building a Greenland kayak makes an excellent introduction to woodworking and boatbuilding and is an inexpensive way to get on the water in a high-performance kayak. Building it requires an investment of time, so as the author says, the best kayak builder is one who believes the process of building a kayak is a goal in itself and not just a means to an end. Chris Cunningham first rebuilt a Greenland kayak in the early 1970s, and has built numerous Alaskan and Greenland kayaks since 1979. He taught Greenland kayak construction at the WoodenBoat school for three years, with a total of 21 students successfully building kayaks. Cunningham first wrote these instructions after finding that the only book devoted to the topic was inadequate for the do-it-yourselfer. He published the instructions in abbreviated form in 1993-94 in a two-part Sea Kayaker article that became the magazine s most requested reprint ever.The book will also include a chapter on building a child s kayak with outriggers for stability, chapters on equipment including paddles and rolling sticks, and a chapter on kayak paddling including strokes, braces, and rolling techniques.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
