I have volunteered to present at this year's MEC Paddlefest in Toronto (http:\\mec.ca\paddlefest). I will be taking my finished SOF Kayak and possibly hull#2 under construction. The agenda will center around the experience of building, it's various rewards and options. Topics will include types of contruction (SOF, S&G, Strip, glass), designs; materials; skills required; support; cost; time to build... and the like.
So couple questions:
1) Average time to build: S&G; Hybrid; strip
2) Average cost to build: S&G, Hybrid; strip (I was planning on using the costs of kits as an example)
3) Other FAQ that might be good to add to the one pager hand out (of course CLC and this forum will be featured)
If all goes well, next year I will have Kia Ora (SOF) and Leo (WD12) as examples of home builts.
