Funny video title: Stripping to MusicNick Schade—Guillemot Kayaks

Nick's got some great titles for his videos in these series.

Nick Schade has been documenting, on a day-to-day basis, his process for building Guillemot Kayaks' designs. The latest is a build of the microBootlegger Sport, a beautiful and sleek double paddle kayak. Here's the whole playlist on YouTube, which will play the next episode automatically when you finish one.If you're building one of Nick's boats in particular, then this is obvious gold, but there is a lot to glean here for anybody wanting to know more about strip-built or skin-on-frame boats. In an average of 20 minutes per episode, Nick gives a level of detail that both seasoned and beginner boatbuilders will appreciate, as he shares his own personal take on all sorts of aspects of the build, through the entire process, from buying the lumber to doing the finish work.

    Nick is a true treasure for those interested in building strip-plank kayaks and/or canoes. He was my instructor at WoodenBoat School last year and I just launched his 17’ Mystic River canoe design last weekend.
