KODIAK 3-HOLE KAYAK
My brother and I built this kayak from scrap wood, sawn-up pallets, and quarter-round hemlock molding in 1994. Its based somewhat on the drawing of the two-hole Baidarka in Adney & Chappelle's book The Bark Canoes and Skinboats of North America (1964:197, fig.179) . We lengthened it to 21', but maintained the breadth of 29-1/2". Don and I put some good miles on this kayak, and its painted canvas skin held up very well considering. This kayak has since been recycled into other kayaks, and base-molding. The carved bow-piece hangs on my garage wall.
Camping at Hope Island, 1994 or 95.
