If you're local builder who can get to classes on Gabriola Island I have courses that run over weekends and/or evenings. I can be somewhat flexible in the scheduling so we can work out a plan that works for both of us.
For a build price of $1650 and some of your time you take home a fully finished kayak plus the knowledge and satisfaction of your own handiwork. A deposit of $750 is required to register with the remainder due when you take the kayak home.
Check through the website for more detailed information and feel free to contact me with any questions. Time permitting I can arrange to meet up with a couple of kayaks for a show and tell to help you understand what you are getting into.
