Our Shop Building Materials Feel Free to Give us a Call

We start with a large, clean, dedicated working environment for our boat works. 

We listen to the best of 70's rock to keep our focus.  We use the highest grade of marine mahogany plywood, OKOUME, which is an African mahogany used for centuries in the boat building world.  The grade is 3-ply, BS-1088 and 4mm of thickness for strength and durability.

Once the frame of the kayak has been assembled, a six ounce glass cloth is applied inside and out to each boat using System 3 Epoxy.

Three coats of resin are applied.  The boat is then clear coated with a two part poly-urethane or marine varnish, for added UV light protection to the boat.  In total, your kayak will enjoy over 100 hours of construction time in our shop before she is ready for the water. 

Every kayak is paddle tested and must be approved by the owner, Gregg Gilmer, before it is available to the market.
