Re: Strip: Fast Touring Kayak by Bjorn Thomasson

Just another note about the pics from above, it amazes me how many of these kayaks get built in such small areas.

This one was just about the maximum I could build in my garage space (single garage with too many tools....).
The 'open floor area' (without the strongback or boat) is about 4.5' x 20' ...after I move my small bandsaw out of the way.
My tablesaw with the long infeed and outfeed tables makes a great 'workbench'....though my neighbour didn't really understand when I tried to explain that it would take me an hour to uncover the saw so I could rip a couple of 2 x 4s for him. ;-)

A bigger space would make working a lot easier, and it's also easier to spot mistakes if you can take a step back from the boat. ;-)

The good part of a small workspace is that it's pretty easy to warm it up if necessary, though it seldom gets very cold here on the west coast (Vancouver Is).
