FreeB Launch in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Recommended Posts

FreeB 12' SOF kayak launched June 3, 2017 on the Huron River in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This is the first boat I've built. It was constructed, literally, on the coffee table in my one bedroom apartment during very limited spare time over about 9 months.


Stations and floors: 1/2" Baltic birch

Stringers: cut from a single piece of western red cedar 1x8x14

Fabric: 6oz polyester from Kudzu Craft

Coating: 2 part urethane from Spirit Line Skin Boat Store

Education: Fuselage Frame Boats (book) by S. Jeff Horton


It paddles like a dream.
