Hi, new here, I am a fisherman, handyman who loves woodworking and the ocean. I usually paddle to fish in the sea. I actually own two plastic SOT, wich I want to get rid off.
Heres the question, I want to build a SOT wooden kayak, can I use a SIT sea kayak plan and modified it? Making a large self bailing cockpit area with drain holes. Intead of sitting in the bottom, I' ll be sitting like 3 or 4 inches above. I like greenland models, I want it to be fast, and able to cut the surf, but stable at anchor for fishing.
