Paul F. from UK

What model Shrike did you choose?

What modifications, if any, did you make to the design described in the Build Manual?
I fitted deck beams in a square layout around each of the hatches, including a forehatch

What is the weight of the finished kayak?
16 kg

Anything you wish you had done differently?
Avoided applying the glass tape in cold weather, as the result was cloudy.

Any tips you’d like to suggest to future builders?
Building in a warm place will help the penetration of epoxy resin into the glass cloth and tape.

How does the kayak perform on the water?
Great! I really love it.
