Hi. I have been poring over lots of kayak building videos and all the information i can for the endeavor of building my own. I have decided to build the S&G guillemont, not only because the plans are free but what amazing kayaks nick schade has built and the experience he has developing small craft. I hope to use it for some weekend excursions. So the final details i have questions about are :
1) what thickness plywood can be used for this kayak?
2) can wood flour be used for thickening the epoxy on scarf joints?
3 )how much epoxy would be needed to build this kayak ( CLC kit for similar length is 3 gallons @ 2:1 ratio). has anyone used a less expensive epoxy than MAS that works well enough? I am not going to do a clear coat as my final finish. I know i will need non-blush, low viscosity?, slow hardener.
thanks for all your help in advanced
