starting to get some nice shots!!

This is just the beginning and we're getting some good pics already! Getting pics while paddling is at times difficult! Unless you have a Hobie foot powered tandem yak as janetb and terry! That thing wails, I was paddling steady as they were seemingly just pumping about. Terry was snapping pics left and right, up down whatever.And I did not get a pic of them!

Brian, I've been messing around for hours setting my 256 colors thing on the control panel trying to get violet that color, thanks for letting me know I've got some monitor issues! Guess I'll have to get a geek squader in here to check things out.
One more pic of the new design yak-rak for airstreams I'm working on.

As you can see from my first picture we take a somewhat less stressful approach to kayaking. There is a complete chronicle of the construction of my kayak noted in my signature.

Doorgunner,
Great concept there on the YakRak.

One un-named member here has been pressuring me to post photos of my kayaks, so here goes. These guys are obviously in storage - I don't have, or can't find, any pics with them on the water. I'll look more...

These are all Ocean Kayaks brand, A "Scupper Pro" 14', a "Drifter" fishing boat 12.5' and a "Frenzy" which is around 9'.
Dave

Not the greatest photo and no A/S but this is what we have, Necky Looksha's. This was my first trip out with a camera in the boat.




We hope to take the kayaks to the falluminum in November. Then we should be able to get a kayak / Argosy photo.

Doorgunner.... we do not have any pix of kayaks with the airstream yet....

But now I have a reason to insist that Rome get them out so we can take a short trip with all the above... "airforums MUST have some photos!!!"

Kayaks & canoe

My Father loves to build boats. He started with an 18-foot sailboat of his own design. Then, he rebuilt a Wianno Senior sailboat that had been built originally prior to about 1930. Next, he designed and built a 44-foot trawler-type powerboat that he and my Mother lived aboard for 19 years. Now that he is back on land and without a boat of his own, he has kept busy building kit boats for others.

In this photo, you see a 16-foot kayak under construction. Suspended from the ceiling is a 17-foot kayak and a 12-foot lapstrake canoe. All these kits come from Chesapeake Light Craft. Ever the tinkerer, however, my Father has made a few improvements and refinements.

In a couple of weeks, I'll trek to Massachusetts to pick up the 16-foot kayak and the lapstrake canoe. The 17-footer has found a home on the Concord River with family friends.

Beautiful kayaks, Mike! Much like Doorgunner's artwork.
Ours is a big plastic bathtub compared to those sleek creations, but much fun!

There sure are a lot of different designs out there! Each has it's sweet spot!
Dave, there are a group of fishermen in the area that have the same 9 footer as you own.They put in upstream and fish/float downstream for 6 miles. I spoke with them about their craft, nutin but rave reviews!
Mike- we miss you here in NorCal!! Your dad has quite a thing going on!!If I might just explain all the wooden battens around the yak under construction.
What's happening here is a thing called "winding". It's how to align the craft just prior to epoxing it in place.A level is placed (as in the pic) equidistant from both ends and approx 5 feet from the end ,winding sticks are then placed horizontally and lined up by eye with the level. You also need to look at the bow and stern to make sure they are perpendicular to the winding sticks. A tweak is sometimes required.Notice that the hull is suspended and held on to those battens with 4 clamps. This is the most important step in building. When you are satisfied with how things look you apply epoxy fillets and 3" tape along the seams.This locks the shape! Nice pic Mike
Howie- your yak is award winning!! great web on building. very nice indeed.
Jan could be in any yak and make it look beautiful!
I wanna see the fins on your boat Janet! Underwater shot maybe?

More pics. anyone have a aluminum yak?
