It was my first SoF Project, but i found an experienced SoF Builder who was very Kind to give me

many usefult hints. The fabric ist one of his hints.


i have used "Novely Oxford 600D"


it is waterproof so it could be used without coatig, but i never tried.


Here you can see how it looks before "ironing"

(You can also see that i will do an asymmetric sewing on the edge of the gunwale)



It is not that flexible, so i have used "cut  and glue" on stern and bow.

It can easy and durable glued with "Sabacontact 70 T"

      Pictures of "Comet" my Kudzu Vardo kayak on its maiden voyage! Initial impressions were favorable; the kayak accelerates at a decent rate, easily holds her cruise speed and tracks straight and true. My getting into and out of Comet will need improvement! Overall she's a fun kayak.
      My daughter Laura painted some pacific northwest American Indian art on my kayak.
