Stig, from Denmark, has completed a wood frame Sea Cruiser.
Joshua, from Green Bay, Wisconsin paddles his Sea Cruiser. His comments….. “I’ve recently finished my Sea Cruiser (my fourth kayak build) and I’m very pleased with not only the design and performance of the boat, but the construction methods as well. The kayak is fast, stable, and very light, rolls well, and looks fantastic. The build time was way less than half that of the other boats I’ve built, and it cost much, much less to make.”
Pictured above are four Nikumi Baidarka’s, one Sea Bee, and one Sea Ranger built in a class sponsored by the Yonkers Paddling and Rowing Club (YPRC) and taught by Jack Gilman in Yonkers, New York. Below is a two part video by Duncan Raymond of the Nikumi Baidarka’s and a paddle being built at the YPRC last winter.
