The two kayaks are identical except for the color scheme. Made from a plan from CLC boats, with 4mm marine plywood. This is not from a kit. After cutting the panels, I temporarily glue the edges and then I fiberglassed the interior and exterior of the deck and the hull and then joined them together. More fiberglass and epoxy, sanding and painting and done.(400 hours later)
This kayak will support 100lb. Is about 8’ long and 24” wide and weighs about 42lb.

By the looks of what is hanging in your workshop, you are not new to boat building. It is also evident in you Kayaks. They are beautiful.
