Ok, I should have been more clear..
I made a skin-on-frame kayak where the frame was made out of WRC. It was then covered in a trucking tarp material.
My first one- for my daughter:
My second one- for me:
(The paint dots are finger prints from many of my friends and family. I painted epoxy over them to preserve them. And then put a varnish over it to UV protect it.)
(Mom passed away 8 months later. She helped me put the skin on the kayak. We both worked until our fingers were bloody.)
My boat likes to try and throw me in the water. I'm a little heavy for it *and* have awful balance!
