KAYAK DESIGNING
 

Have you ever wanted to build a stitch & glue kayak that is your design?

I can work with you and your design will be cnc ready.

The kayak will be a single chine Greenland kayak, it will have a flat panel deck and a traditional coming.

If this sounds interesting to you, please contact us and the first thing we will do is send you a building manual for this type of build so you can decide if you would want to tackle a project like this.

(please e-mail me the building manual for a stitch & glue kayak)

You will need to draw the center line, sheer and the chine in the side & top view.

You can use sketchup, illustrator or just draw the lines on paper and then scan it to a pdf file so you can e-mail it to me.

You will need to draw a cross section at the coming area of the kayak.

You will decide on the length, width at the beam, angle of the stems, height of the ends from level, height at the front of the coming, height at the back of the coming, angle of the panels at the cross section, placement of the bulkheads, placement of the hatches.

You will decide on the weight of the kayaker and where the weight of the kayaker is in relation to the center of buoyancy.

 
 

 
 

I will start with the lines you e-mail to me, clean them up and send them back to you as a screen capture, if you like what you see I will continue on to build the hull in 3/d.

I will send you the hull as a screen capture, you will be able to see what your kayak hull looks like in the water, you will be able to see the exact amount of freeboard your kayak will have. You will be able to see all of the hydrostatic
information for this kayak hull of yours.

I will build the deck and complete the kayak in 3/d, I will send this to you as a screen capture, if you like the kayak I will continue on and layout all the parts so they can be cut on a cnc machine.

I use a tolerance setting of .001 inch with the cad program, so these cnc parts will go together like a swiss watch.

The price for all of this cad work is usd $700.00.

You will own the design rights to this kayak, it's your design.

The final work that I will send you for this design of yours will be, the dxf files of the nested parts laid out on three 4' x 8' sheets of plywood.
