As a strapped-for-cash college grad, Nick Schade drew up plans for a high-performing, cost-efficient kayak made of materials such as wood and fiberglass, which he built with his brother. Two decades later, owners of Schade’s Guillemot canoes and kayaks often field questions from other boaters curious about the avant-garde wood frames. Besides selling complete boats, Schade offers DIY kits for all 30 of his designs, none of which require special skills or fancy equipment to assemble. Use these full scale plans signed by Schade to build your own wood Petrel sea kayak.
Plans include patterns for all the forms needed to build a functioning sea kayak drawn out at full size and individually. No copying or lofting is required, just glue the plans to your form material and cut out around the lines. Free shipping.
