Kayak Plans and other Wooden Boat Designs sticky icon

Guillemot Kayaks has been offering complete plans and instructions for building high performance wooden kayaks since 1993. Each kayak plan includes all the forms drawn out at full size and individually. No copying or lofting is required, just glue the plans to your form material and cut out around the lines. Each plan is printed out as an original to minimize any chance of errors being introduced in the reproduction process.

Technical Support

I want to make the building process as easy as possible. To that end my Book attempts to provide clear and concise instructions in building a strip-built boat building, but it is inevitable that some people are going to end up with questions while building their boat. Feel free to contact me via email or phone. I find email works well for building questions because it provides a written record that avoids memory failures when you get back to the project.

Custom Designed Kayaks and Other Boats

Are you not average? Are you taller, shorter, heavier, or lighter than the "average" paddler? Do you have trouble finding a boat which fits comfortably? The practicalities of mass-produced boats makes it impossible make a standard product which will work for everyone. This forces most kayak builders to concentrate on the "typical" paddler. But if you are building your own boat or having one custom built, there is no reason to be tied down to a less-than-ideal design. I can create a custom design optimized for you.
