From coast to coast, home boatbuilders have turned to Chris Kulczycki for everything they needed to know about making their own kayaks from high-grade marine plywood and epoxy. (Rhode Island Boating 2001-01-22)From the Back Cover:
"Recommended reading for anyone contemplating going paddling in a kayak of their own creation."--Sea Kayaker, on The Kayak Shop
With the publication of The Kayak Shop in 1993, master builder Chris Kulczycki helped launch a popular revolution in kayak building. But he didn't stop there. Kulczycki's boats just keep getting better--easier to build and more beautiful to behold.
In The New Kayak Shop paddlers will find plans and instructions for building and finishing three new stitch-and-glue designs--a touring kayak, a fast sea kayak, and a flatwater kayak--that are even more elegant, durable, and functional than their forerunners. Chris Kulczycki's highly refined designs and simple building methods offer kayakers not only the experience of paddling an extraordinary boat but also the rare reward of having built it.
