What model Shrike did you choose?
Shrike too

What modifications, if any, did you make to the design described in the Build Manual?
I made the topside panels 30 mm lower. I have also used fiberglass on the inside and outside. I have a different deck layout. I have also bought a ocean cockpit in carbon fiber from a Swedish kayak builder

What is the weight of the finished kayak?
Less than 20 kg

Anything you wish you had done differently?
It was my first build I learned a lot! I will be more careful with the wood work, it is very hard to correct with resin and fiberglass. I have done lot of sanding…

Any tips you’d like to suggest to future builders?
Ask around, look at the Internet. If someone in Sweden is building they are free to contact me

How does the kayak perform on the water?
Fantastic, the kayak respond to me perfect I like it!
