From the Cape Falcon Kayak website http://www.capefalconkayak.com/ :
"Building your own kayak is a fun and rewarding experience. The scale and cost of a kayak places this goal easily within reach.
At Cape Falcon Kayak we work VERY HARD to design the best skin-on-frame kayaks you can buy or build anywhere. Because we build a large quantity of kayaks per year (about eighty) the process is highly refined.
The synergy between student and teacher and the ability to instantly incorporated new ideas allow these kayaks to grow in a way that feels alive. You will learn to trust your own sense of balance and symmetry as you and the kayak grow together.
Woodworking skills are not needed and all materials are supplied. ... The class runs seven eight-hour days and on four hour day.
