Hi!i developed the urge to build my own canoe/kayak. it took a while to get the courage for the undertaking, and my research took me down several possible avenues….. Free plans for stitch and glue boatbuilding. many good free plywood contruction stitch and glue boat plan. stitch and glue plans are good wooden boat plans for beginners.. Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. it is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle..
