Re: NO such thing as "fuselage" kayaks!

Google search confirms the term going no further back than 2011, and propagated primarily by Mr. Kudzu.

Sorry, but no.

Without much effort I found this article from November of 2007 in Duckworks Magazine discussing FUSELAGE frame kayak building.

So, no, the term fuselage frame is not a product of Mr. Horton's marketing strategy; it is a long accepted term used to describe a method of building skin on frame kayaks.
