Georgijs Kalicava from Latvia

Which model Shrike did choose?
Standard Shrike

What modifications, if any, did you make to the design described in the build manual?
I used 4 mm plywood instead of 3 mm, heavy and over-sized oak sheer clamps, and too much epoxy through inexperience. This makes the kayak heavier than I wished.

What is the weight of the finished kayak?

24 kg

Anything you wished you had done differently?
I did not fit a skeg, and I now regard this as a mistake.
