Instructions on how to build a skin-on-frame Greenland kayak. If you’re interested in these boats, the chap responsible, Wolfgang Brinck, has a busy website that’s well worth exploring, and also a weblog.
Here’s what he says about himself:
‘I build skin on frame boats and make paddles and teach other people how to build skin boats and make paddles. Skin on frame technology may seem like retro technology but in fact is the wave of the future. There’s no technique for building small boats that is faster and uses fewer materials than skin on frame. It is the boat building method of choice in a world of dwindling resources.’
