Qivitoq Sea Kayak plansFree Qivitoq Sea Kayak plans - Truth to tell, I would choose another construction technique next time. As she was my first boat project, I went with the style of construction as described in the Chewonki article, which was integrating the stations as bulkheads. This probably added 25-30 lbs deadweight to the design. A better way would be to tack chine logs, sheer clamps, inner stems and a keelson to the stations, fair them in, add the plywood skin and then remove the hull from the stations. The deck would then be added. Since kayaks are decked boats, only minimal internal bracing is needed. Also, I would deep-six my hatch design in favor of a lighter version. However, if you don\'t mind lugging a 80 lb kayak off your cartop, then the original construction is just fine (and it would probably survive a torpedo hit).
