A Viewer From Norway:
Kayak Design @ Kayak Way
DESIGN @ Kayak Way is an innovative, multithreaded examination
into traditional kayaks and their design for the backyard builder or home
designer who wishes to develop workable, original kayaks of their own
creation, or who seeks to better understand the designs of others.
is a student of Alaskan kayak traditions, with a special emphasis on the
Aleutian and Bering Sea types. Snaith has worked in several native villages
since 1998 on kayak building and research projects. In addition to hosting
the DVD, Snaith offers a two-part discussion of practical design, with
a piece by piece, function by function breakdown of the kayak and its’
design, from deck ridge to keel, complete with rules of thumb and comparative
scantlings, sizes and dimensions.
What viewers are saying:
"I learned a lot... I especially
liked the humor
"thanks...I learned something." Mr. G. -Oregon
"I expected this DVD to be a Technical, full of formula, naval architect approach to the scientific design of kayaks. I was wrong, but not disappointed."
