What model Shrike did you choose?
Shrike-R in Kit form
What modifications, if any, did you make to the design described in the Build Manual?
This was the first example of the kit which was developed by Clear Stream Custom Water Craft. It uses a different method of joining the fore and aft decks as well as a different approach to the cockpit rim.
The kit is now available for purchase: http://watercraft.clearstreamwood.com/shop/plans_kayaks/shrike-r/
What is the weight of the finished kayak?
How does the kayak perform on the water?
We look forward to hearing from its proud new owner once it gets delivered.
