Kudzu Craft - Lightweight Skin on Frame Boats - You can build your own 32-lb boat for $300 to $400 in materials! My boats are based on methods that have been proven over thousands of years but using modern materials. Boat frames are built fuselage style, much like airplane construction. The frames are marine plywood and the stringers are made from lightweight woods lashed together with artificial sinew. A synthetic fabric skin is sewn over the frame, shrunk, waterproofed and it becomes a structural member of the boat. This makes an extremely strong, durable and lightweight boat.

Long Haul Folding Kayaks - The World's Finest - Our kayaks consist of two major subassemblies, the frame and the hull. The frame of all Mk I, MK II, and Commando kayaks consist of marine grade laminate, white birch plywood, and hardwood ash stringers with stainless steel fittings. All wood-to-wood joints are assembled with marine grade epoxy and riveted for reinforcement where necessary. The hull is manufactured from CSM poly fabric rubber compound. The deck is sewn to the hull and consists of either a high quality traditional breathable cotton or modern hi tech Sea Mark® fabric.
Our boats are designed for extended expeditions away from civilization. The materials and design techniques used create a vessel that not only is capable of absorbing demanding punishment, but is also easily repairable in the field. Barring a catastrophic collision most, if any, field repairs will consist of applying a patch to the rubber hull. In case of a rare frame fracture a splint will usually be quite adequate. Of course spare parts are available from us.

Maine Island Trail Association - Established in 1987, the Maine Island Trail Association is a membership organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the wild islands of coastal Maine. With 191 trail sites and over two decades of community-building, stewardship and education, the organization developed a model of sustainable recreation while creating America’s first recreational water trail. The 375-mile waterway extends from the New Hampshire border to Machias Bay. MITA was founded on the belief that recreational visitors can and should serve as stewards of Maine's wild islands. From its inception, MITA has fostered a community of volunteer boaters and island users who monitor conditions on the Trail, participate in island clean-ups and other work projects, track recreational use of Trail properties, and spread the word about environment-friendly low-impact practices. Current members enjoy access to Trail properties for day use or overnight visits in return for observing low-impact techniques as outlined in MITA's annual 250-page Trail guide.
