take to the water in style for less than $300 and a few weekends and evenings of work Simplicity, elegance, performance, and speed: these are the hallmarks of the Greenland kayak. Its low profile minimizes windage, and its narrow beam makes it well behaved in rough water and fast. Despite its ancient origins, the Greenland kayak is lively, versatile, and responsive even by modern standards. Building the Greenland Kayak leads you step-by-step through the process of crafting your own lashed-frame, fabric-covered, custom-fitted Greenland kayak, using inexpensive, easy-to-find materials and common woodworking tools. Master boatbuilder Christopher Cunningham provides plenty of tips and pointers to help you build a kayak that is strong, flexible, and perfectly scaled to your dimensions. Great for the accomplished boatbuilder and the novice alike, this easy-to-use manual includes
  • Easy-to-follow building instructions accompanied by hundreds of photos
  • Complete lists of all the tools and materials you'll need
  • Detailed primers in lumber milling, fastening, rib bending, and measuring
  • Additional instructions for making a Greenland paddle, paddling clothing, float bags, skegs, and more
  • Pointers on paddling skills, kayak rolling, and children's kayaks

  1. Bra bok!
    Jonas Karlsson, 8 juni 2015

    För en person som vill lära sig mera om om inuiternas kajaker, hur man använder dessa och framför allt hur man bygger dessa farkoster är detta en bra bok. Boken har noggranna beskrivningar som verkar vara tillräckligt detaljerade i de flesta moment och ett antal bilder som illustrerar momentet. Det som är svårt med boken är att alla mått är angivna i amerikanska enheter plus att engelskan ibland är på en svårläst nivå, exempelvis när vissa snickerierelaterade termer används.

  2. Mycket bra
    erik@kajak.nu, 30 september 2003

    Denna bok går igenom hur man själv bygger sig en en kajak enligt gamla "recept". Jag har ännu inte byggt mig någon kajak efter bokens beskrivningar, men det verkar inte vara några problem om man följer boken. En mycket intressant bok som även går igenom annan utrustning för kajaken; typ Tuiliq, paddel, vattentäta säckar, flytelement med mera.

Christopher Cunningham has been the editor of Sea Kayaker magazine, Americas leading sea kayak publication, since 1989. His father first took him paddling at the age of 4 or 5. He rebuilt his first kayak in the early 1970s and has been building kayaks since 1979. He taught Greenland kayak construction at the WoodenBoat school for three years, with seven students each year producing their own kayaks. He has built four 1:5 scale models of traditional kayak frames for the Alaska State Museum and was featured building a Greenland kayak in a one-half hour episode of Craftsmen of the World for Japanese Public Television. Chris has twice rowed up the Inside Passage from Washington to Alaska, paddled 2,500 miles from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, and rowed 2,400 miles from Pittsburgh to Florida.HOMETOWN: Seattle, Washington
