leather/natural skins for kayak building

Submitted byaru onThu, 08/12/2021 - 00:13

Im looking to make a primitive/traditional SOF kayak, I cant find anything on this. I planned to use oil tanned leather, sealed with a beeswax mixture. Any thoughts? I was told on a leatherworking forum that oil tanned leather wouldnt work. Its hard to find info on this.
