I am building my second kayak, but this time it is in an unheated, uninsultated garage. (I am in Montana, with about 10 inches of wet snow on the ground) A friend of mine is storing my wood in his garage, which is heated. We were going to cut it, plane it and rout in his garage, as he has ample room to cut 20 ft strips. He has built a lot of kayaks and canoes, but never in my kind of conditions. He is reluctant to cut the strips yet because transporting them from his warm garage to my cold one, he feels will cause a lot of problems. While I agree that epoxy would be a bad idea, I don't know what kind of problems I will find with wood.
Can any of you add some information to this? I really want to start building now, and not sometime in the next 3 months before it decides to get warm once again. BTW, I think I need to go on a groundhog hunt.
Thanks for your input!
