Kayak's are small boats powered by humans. They usually have a deck that is covered and a cockpit where the person sits while paddling the boat. The Kayak can sit more then one person depending on the size you buy. The paddle is double bladed for ease of paddling.
When building your kayak you need to consider where you plan to use it. There are many materials available depending on usage. There are sea kayaks, racing and whitewater river kayaks.
When building a sea kayak the top considerations should be seaworthiness, stability, and the ability to hold a lot of cargo. The building requirement for this type of kayak would usually be skin on frame construction.
Kayaks for whitewater should be highly maneuverable with the ability to shoot the rapids of rivers while surf kayaks are built to be long and narrow in order to break through the ocean waves. This surf kayak sometimes called the "surf skis" is excellent for ocean shoreline rescues.
Wood and Canvas Kayak Building
Racing Kayak's are made for speed and when building one special care should be made to insure stability with a narrow hull to quickly move through the water.
You can build your own kayak from rotomolded plastic, wood and fabrics that cover wood, aluminum or fiberglass frame. The more layers of fiberglass used to cover the frame the higher the strength of the boat.
Original kayaks were made with stretched sealskin covering wooden frames. Now the skin is replaced with canvas or nylon cloth and sometimes painted or covered with a rubber coating.

Dear Kayaking Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
