Kayak Design

Kayak by Nick Piazza

Hi, I have finished my Kayak and launched her for the first time yesterday. I am very pleased with it. It took me most of the winter months to complete, in the little spare time that I have. Thank you for the easy to follow plans & patterns. I built her of mahogany and 1/4 in. exterior luan, saturated the inside with epoxy and fiberglassed the exterior and painted it yellow. I wanted a larger cockpit for fishing the back bays here on Long Island in NY, or taking one of my kids for a paddle. Also made two watertight bulkheads with deck plates on each end. THANKYOU, Nick Piazza

December 12, 2005 Dear Manager, I bought last 06-07-05 the plans and patterns for the Kayak, number 480. Now I am finished, I am sending some construction photos. I didn't use nails or screws, I used only epoxy, with a lot of clamps and washer blocks. I covered only the bottom with mat and polyester resin. I use the Kayak to paddle with my son. It is very good and has a lot of space. I would like you to put these photos in Customer Photos. I am sending these together with an order form to buy the Book of Boat Designs because I intend to choose a new design to build. The Kayak was the first boat that I have built, I am an amateur, I am a dentist. The Glen-L designs are very good, objective and easy to understand. Best regards Louis Carl da
