Homegrown Boats was born when two longtime Cape Cod sea kayakers, Edgar and Judy Kleindinst (whose hobby was building wood strip kayaks and who had always wanted to film one of their boat building projects) joined forces with another sea kayaker, Jen Burns, who was filming programs for public television and who had always wanted to build her own boat. The result of this year and a half long project is an in-depth video on building a wood strip kayak. The kayak we chose to build, "Panache", was designed by Rob Macks (of Laughing Loon Custom Canoes & Kayaks). This video will be extremely useful no matter which design you decide to build. Even if you are just thinking about building a wood strip boat you should get this video to see what it will be like. In this video we share with you all the tricks and tips we have learned over the years, through trial and error and by talking to other boat builders. In this four hour video we show you everything from picking out the right woods and setting up the strongback, through stripping, fiberglassing, all the way to varnishing the final product.
