sectional kayaks
Date: 6/4/2001, 1:42 pm

I plan to build a stitch and glue sea kayak. The catch is, I want to make it in three sections. Boat storage is the main issue. I have read that sectional kayaks are more rigid than one piece and the multiple bulkheads would also contribute to floation.
Does anyone have any knowledge on this type of plan modification? Are there any concerns to be addressed? Any input is appreciated.
