What model Shrike did you choose?
I built two standard Shrikes, I donated one to an NGO and the other to a friend, I am building two more now.
What modifications, if any, did you make to the design described in the Build Manual?
I made my own hatches, which I am having a tough time make water proof
What is the weight of the finished kayak?
I don’t know I didn’t weight them! I will weigh the next one I build.
How does the kayak perform on the water?
They are amazing. I actually paddled with one in a 42km contest. I left last and came in the 11th place, out of more than 50 paddlers. Their primary stability is not that great, but it has a great second stability.
