In looking for a kayak my Varsity Scout team can build I came across one that consists of a canvas skin over a wood structure. Does anybody know where I can get information on these light yet delicate structures? I know I wouldn't surf a painting but these look interesting. If this is not a good idea, Are there plans in existance for a kayak that can be built by kids who think a bicycle can be repaired with a hammer?

thank you
