Thanks
I have looked at both Pygmy's and Jemcraft's web site. Like both of them a lot, look like they know what they are doing.

For the first one, I''l probably go with a complete kit, as I have never built a kayak or done any stitch and glue construction. Plus I know I can't cut anything as accurate as a CNC machine can.

It will be after the first of the year before I pull the trigger, but something I have been wanting to do.

Thanks

Here's another company that has been around a while and has some really pretty boats

Those are some pretty cool links. It would be really cool to see a wooden yak at the next GCKFA Tourney.

If I was not rebuilding my V20 I might have already ordered plans for the Sobalo. Maybe after I finish this monstrosity in the garage.

Mark, Jem’s owner/designer/chief-cook & bottle-washer, suggest that you build a simple yak first if you have never done it (Stitch & Glue) before.
I have to say that I agree.
Even with the kit, I made more than one somewhat costly/time consuming mistakes on the pigmy. Hence, the many call back to Pigmy “Why doesn’t the______look like it says in the picture.” Or “Why doesn’t the ____ fit on the _____ as the plan says”.
If ya get my drift.

Jem has a couple of free plans for a simple sit-in yak. Plans only you cut it all out your self, but they are very simple plans & if you have trouble building these you should not try the more complicated kits.

Jem also has a good tutorial & a great forum for help & info from others who have built his boats.

Jem’s Forum/tutorial page; http://www.jemwatercraft.com/forum/

Also, look at his “Wadefish”, similar to the Sabalo with subtle differences asked for by a couple of Yakers from “Down Under”.
