Bibliography

The Strip-Built Sea Kayak
Contains excellent information on the construction of kayaks using the strip method. Very complete, well written, very agreeable graphic layout. Contains numerical tables to construct three kayak models. Also interesting info on paddles and their construction. I wish I had ordered this book before starting my project!

Building Strip-Planked Boats
Building Strip-Planked Boats by Nick Schade primarily describes methods for building beautiful boats from wood strips, fiberglass and epoxy. It updates many techniques that were described in the author's earlier book, The Strip-Built Sea Kayak. This book also provides offset dimensions and instructions to build a dinghy, a one-person canoe and a rough-water sea kayak.

The New Kayak Shop
Also a superb book on kayak construction. The projects in this book are maybe little easier than Nick Schade's, who is an artist. Also, most projects are based on plywood construction. This book also contains three comlete plans.

Wavelength Magazine
As they call it: 'Your gateway to the world of paddling', is a magazine that appears in print in North America, and on their website for the rest of us. They published an article with a reference to my site.
