Petrel Play Kayak

I have started my second build having finished a Wood Duck 12 hybrid last year.  Have bought a band saw, belt sander and a new veritas block plane!  I have used an aluminium strong back for accuracy and made some L spacers.  The plans provided from Guillemot Kayaks are excellent and I am using Nick Shade's book titled Building Strip-Planked Boats and his You Tube videos as my references.  I hope the pics and comments will be of interest and help those thinking of building this beautiful Kayak.

Great stuff James - that's taking your boat building to a whole new level.  It looks as if you've made a good start - it'll be really interesting to see how the build develops.  All the best - especially as it gets a bit colder - but you'll have  thought of that no doubt.

Thanks Tim.  I'm in no rush!  Good to see you are nearly there on your build and looking forward to seeing her (does she have a name yet?) in the water.  Best. J
