Igdlorssuit: Free Kayak Plans for the Boat Before Anas Acuta - The Anas Acuta’s lines were originally developed from a kayak built by Emanuele Korneiliussen in Igdlorssuit for Kenneth Taylor in 1959. This kayak was measured and drawn by Duncan Winning in 1964 and those measurements have appeared in several places on the Internet. I had originally provided the lines of this Igdlorssuit kayak in a HULLS file, but now that FREE! Ship is available, I’ve reentered the lines of this kayak. The year was 1959. The place was Igdlorssuit (Illorsuit is the new spelling). University student Kenneth Taylor was sent by his professor to study the kayak and Inuit culture. While there Emanuele Korneiliussen built Ken a skin-on-frame kayak. The Anas Acuta spawned a wave of British kayaks, and according to a family tree compiled by Duncan Winning those include: Nordkapp, Skerray, Aquanaut, Pintail, Avocet, Q-Boat, Island Kayaks’ Expediton, Newt, Qaarsut(an exact replica of the hull in fiberglass with a modern deck), and Qaarsut 550.

Hull Specs - Hull weight is not the weight of a stripped hull, but the weight you can actually expect to have to lift onto your car. This weight includes deck rigging, footbraces, seat, and other typical fittings. Completed boats can be lighter or heavier depending upon options, construction techniques, wood density, and other variables.

Cockpit Size - Cockpit size refers to the opening in the cockpit coaming that is provided in the kit as standard equipment. Recommended Paddler Weight - Recommended paddler weight should be considered a rough guide. The weight ranges shown will be comfortable, although as you reach the high and low limits other variables like height and shoe size become important. For tandem kayaks, paddler weight is the combined weight of all people. Maximum Shoe Size - Maximum shoe size is expressed in men's sizes and assumes the paddler is shod in the usual neoprene booties.

All shoe sizes on this website are in US Mens. Aux Gîtes des Iles: construction de deux kayaks. Le Kayak de Mer dans le Nouveau Monde - RÉPERTOIRE DE LIENS: Free Kayak Plans. Greenland-style Shearwater Light Touring Kayaks by Eric Schade. Kayak Design Software. Like many kayak builders before me, having built a few different designs, I began to think about designing one of my own.

I was not prepared to pay for a commercial naval architecture package, and I thought it would be a fun project to develop my own kayak design software. KayakFoundry is the result.

Marak.gif (951×595) Doug's Boat Page--Plans. Kayak Building Page. Welcome to the Squeedunk Kayak building page. We have added this page for two reasons. First, we want to show you what goes into the production of our products. This will help you to better understand what our boats are all about and will to highlight many of the features of our kayaks. Our second reason for this page is to provide information and tips for those of you who are interested in building your own boat. There are many options, from buying a kit, starting with a set of plans, or, for the more adventurous, to designing your own boat. to help get you started, there are several books and even a Kayak Building Bulletin Board where you can ask, and get answers to just about any possible kayak building question.

On our own site, we have several building pages. our newest is the Puffin building page, which features a marine plywood stitch and glue Bering Sea style kayak. Our Loon building page features a strip-built eastern Canada style kayak. At Squeedunk Kayaks, we have no secrets. Night Heron Drawings | Guillemot Kayaks. Free Stitch and Glue Kayak Plans | Guillemot Kayaks. I've decided to make the plans for my Stitch & Glue Guillemot available to internet users as "share ware". If you end up building this boat please send me a photograph of the results.

If you don't want to deal with lofting from the offsets, I have full sized drawings available. You can read my experiences making this kayak in the journal I tried to keep as I built it. For now the journal will have to suffice for building instructions. After some sea trials I feel that it is a pretty good boat. Not as nice as my strip-built designs, but respectable. While building it I had some trouble with the shape.

Once you have epoxied the hull it becomes very stiff, especially at the ends. I suggest temporarily stitching the hull and the deck (no epoxy) and then matching them together dry, so you can see the proper shape. These plans are not are NOT PUBLIC DOMAIN. Aleut Baidarka Offsets - free boat plans for building a strip-built baidarka style sea kayaks. A table of offsets for the Aleut baidarka (MAE 593-76) collected on Akun island in the Aleutian Islands in 1845 by the Russian explorer I. G. Vaznesenskii. Based on offsets published by David Zimmerly in Qajak: Kayaks of Siberia and Alaska.

These offsets have been developed with a minimum change from the originally published dimensions. These offsets differ from those published by Zimmerly in that the stations are spaced every foot and they are corrected for the thickness of the strips. For instruction for how to read and use these offsets please refer to my book.This book also includes free offsets for three other kayaks. For more information on how to read the table of offsets please refer to my book. I have also created an Adobe Acrobat file with all the forms drawn out. I have not finalized any plans for the end treatment because they are kind of tricky and would have to be worked out in place. Note that the darker blue horizontal line represents the datum waterline. Have Fun! Le kayak de mer Point Bennett.
