The Wastwater 16 is wide and stable with a slight rocker providing a perfect compromise between good tracking and manoeuvrability. The build time of this hard chined boat is approximately 12 hours (plus however long you wish to take on the painting). The boat has glass fabric set in epoxy on the outside bottom of the hull to provide abrasion resistance in case it is dragged up a rocky beach. The boat comes with rear coaming for comfort and with 2 screw-in watertight bulkhead hatches to allow small items to be stored in the dry. The boat was designed by HJS and named after one of the deepest lakes in the English Lake District.
If, later, you decide to purchase the kit the cost of this printed manual will be deducted from the kit price.
This manual does not contain the plans of the panels with the cutting instructions so it is not possible to build the boat from scratch using only this manual.
An electronic, non paper, version of the 35 page study manual above that can be viewed only using Adobe Reader. After credit card authorisation the file will be sent to the email address put on the order form. This manual and plans give sufficient information and a licence to allow the customer to build the Wastwater 16 from scratch using self sourced materials.
Fyne Boat Kits will give advice and reassurance to anyone who is building one of these boats whether from a kit or from scratch.

This option contains only the non-wood items, for those building the Wastwater canoe from scratch rather than a kit. The Mill Creek is a sea kayak with a cockpit so large that it is almost an open boat: An open boat with a huge volume of buoyancy. Ever since 1997 when WoodenBoat Magazine featured the Mill Creek 13 in a two-issue spread the Mill Creek models have been built in the thousands. The Mill Creek was designed as a wider, shorter, and more stable alternative to the typical sea kayak. The Mill Creek's multi-chine hull and relatively long waterline give a surprising turn of speed. The boats come with traditional slatted seats but an upgrade is available which replaces them with a luxury seat and backband for less than the standard price. Like all of the Mill Creeks, the 13 is surprisingly fast thanks to her efficient 5-panel multichine hull and feather-light 40lb weight. The Mill Creek 16.5 will carry two adults together with camping gear but is still light enough to be paddled by one.
The 13 and 16.5 make wonderful sailing boats, sailing well with a standing or balanced lug sail. If, later, you decide to purchase the kit the cost of this manual 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.

This option contains only the plywood components pre-cut to the correct size with pre-cut joints plus the plans and manual. Light and easily removable outrigger floats that turn a canoe or kayak into a formidable sailing boat or a stable fishing platform. These are the most versatile boats in our range: they can be paddled, rowed using a sliding seat or sailed.
Being a light vessel this boat sails well with a sail on an unstayed mast which can be broken down and carried inside the boat when not in use. It does not contain the plans (these are not required because the wood is pre-cut), any of the epoxy to glue and coat the boat, the fabric or tape nor any of the hardware.
They look good are easy to build and, even though they are more stable than most kayaks, the Mill Creeks offer good speed and handling that you will never get tired of.


That is, if high performance is defined as comfort, good handling, rewarding speed, stability and classic good looks. Combining the stability and comfortable seating of a canoe with the light weight and decked-in security of a kayak, the Mill Creek is perfect for photography, fishing, ornithology, or just relaxed paddling.
They are not as pretty as the traditional seats but more comfortable for long distance work. The cockpit is 54″ long to allow easy entry and exit while the high coaming ensures a fairly dry cockpit even without a spray deck. It is hugely popular since it can be fitted with a sailing system or a drop-in rowing unit or, if you want excitement, we have a kit for outriggers that are attached with clips and which turns it into a fast trimaran. This is the comprehensive manual that accompanies the kit; reading it will help you decide whether or not you can build the boat.

This is the perfect platform for bird watchers and photographers yet doubles as an easily controlled fun boat for children. For greater flexibility the boat does not have seats but, for those who prefer not to kneel, the instructions contain detailed drawings of several types of seats that can be made.
Mahogany trim on cockpits and rails, cambered decks and contoured slatted seats add elegance whilst the fibre glassed 6mm bottom panel will absorb years of groundings in shoal water. Originally drawn as stable and compact complement to the more traditional sea kayaks, the Mill Creeks have found fans among paddlers of all skill levels because they offer so much boat in such a light and easy-to-manage package.
The Mill Creek 13 is light and easy to carry on a roof rack whilst still providing enough capacity for camping gear. Several customers have fitted little electric motors and one has installed a pedal power unit.
