The Wood Duck 10 will carry paddlers who weigh up to 200 pounds and still have a good turn of speed. Unlike our other boats, the Wood Duck has no forward bulkhead, therefore use of bouyancy bags is strongly recommended. If, later, you decide to purchase the kit the cost of this will be deducted from the kit price. The manual does not contain the cutting instructions so it is not possible to build the boat from scratch using only this.
These plans and manual contain sufficient information on the cutting of the panels to make it possible to build the boat from scratch rather than a kit. After credit card authorisation the plans will be sent to the email address put on the order form. When you have studied the plans, your next step might be to order the printed instruction manual, which will walk you through the project step-by-step.
This option contains only the building manual and pre-cut wooden parts including the temporary bulkheads, but does not include the cedar strips or the other items listed above as being in the full kit.
As well as the forms and strongback, 125 m of Bead-and-cove cedar strips, as contained in the full kit, will be sufficient to deck a Wood Duck 10, 12 or 14.
These outriggers will transform your solo or tandem kayak or canoe from a mono-hull into a fast sailing trimaran. Will convert kit or commercial kayaks to sail and will reward home builders with a project that is both eye-catching and fun to sail. While the outrigger equipped kayak is a proper sailing boat, the beauty of the design is that you get your kayak back when you have finished sailing. The floats are attached to two very attractive bent beams which give the kayak or canoe a 10 foot beam. Mounted on a single kayak, the acceleration is almost neck-snapping, with good handling upwind and down and a 9 knot potential. The builder must be prepared to undertake some minor additional work to adapt the outriggers to the kayak or canoe. The outriggers clip onto the kayak in a few minutes and can be removed for paddling or for carrying the boat on a roof rack.
This kit only contains what is needed to make the floats, so you can obtain the other items needed from a timber yard or use an old rig that you may have.
Plans and manual are available for those who wish to source the materials themselves and build the outriggers from scratch.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. A sea captain when he stands upon the bridge, or looks out from his deck-house, thinks much about God and about the world.
The house was built on the highest part of the narrow tongue of land between the harbor and the open sea. And after two days in civilization we realized we could never stay for long and started to plan our next adventure. Twenty years from now you will be more disppointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. There is nothing like lying flat on your back on the deck, alone except for the helmsman aft at the wheel, silence except for the lapping of the sea against the side of the ship. There are three sorts of people; those who are alive, those who are dead, and those who are at sea. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world.
Until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, you will not know the terror of being forever lost at sea. Sailing - The fine art of slowly going nowhere at great expense while being cold, wet and miserable.

This is the comprehensive manual that accompanies the kit; reading it will help you decide whether or not you can build the boat. This option is for those wanting to obtain the other materials needed to build the boat from other sources.
On a light kayak or canoe, with some tweaking of rig and seating arrangements, these floats make for very fast and exciting sailing. With the outrigger removed, all that is left are four eyebolts and an easily hidden mast step: no bulky reinforcements or heavy gear. After a hard day of sailing the floats and beams can be detached so that the whole lot will fit easily upon a car roof rack.
The ten foot beam gives you monolithic stability (and thus sail carrying power with no hiking out), but the whole rig can be dismantled to car top in half an hour.


The compact kayak and rig can be cartopped to some far-flung archipelago, assembled on the beach, loaded with gear, and sailed 40+ miles in eight hours. There are two different sizes of sail for the Mk II sailing rig: the smaller is more than enough for fast sailing in solo kayaks and canoes and the larger sail is a good fit for most tandem kayaks or for pushing single kayaks a little harder. The plans give full lofting details and the manual explains the techniques that will be used as well as a step-by-step guide to the assembly. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Away in the valley yonder among the corn and the poppies men may well forget all things except the warmth of the sun upon the face, and the kind shadow under the hedge; but he who journeys through storm and darkness must needs think and think. Moulds or temporary bulkheads are set into the hull at various stations and used to support the deck as it is assembled from strip cedar. Included with the kit is a mixture of dark and medium colour western red cedar strips, plus yellow cedar strips for light accents. It describes all of the techniques that will be used during the build and also a step by step guide to construction. Both of the Mk II sails have a single full-length batten, a boom and a sleeve that fits over the aluminium tube mast.
The Mk III sailing rig includes a sail track to be pop-riveted to the aluminium mast, for easy hoisting. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
Morgan Sr., in answer to a question by Henry Clay Pierce on how much it costs to own and run a yacht. Once the deck is assembled it is removed, the moulds discarded, and then replaced permanently. In good weather, long crossings can be contemplated, and a theoretical voyage might carry you 250 miles or more in six days. While we offer suggested patterns, each builder can develop their own unique strip deck design as they assemble their kit. The Mk III rig should be reserved for sailors with some skill and for kayaks with enough bow volume to handle the speed without submerging.
I found him a man of many notions all flavoured with his personality, as is the way with sailors.
He talked in his queer sea manner of God and the world, and up through all his words broke the hard energy of his calling.
