My new kit was delivered a few days ago. I am thrilled at how well this kit is put together. Even the panels have been scarfed and carefully packaged. No detail seems to be overlooked. For those who may be considering a build, the kit is an excellent value. Get The New Kayak Shop too! I've had it for a couple years and it is a great resource.
I've got the shears and bottom glued up already and have begun stitching.
