This tandem kayak was one of the best projects I have ever encountered. It didn't cost an arm and a leg, but was still interesting enough to keep me motivated. The plans and instructions were the best I have used on any project. I added three items for "my" kayak. I used Dzus fasteners for the hatches. My girlfriend, Karen, wood-burned the barracuda chasing angel fish on the side. I carved a pelican head out of Spanish Cedar for the nose. It works as a carrying handle and might be handy in limited water space when there are a lot of inflatables. I just finished this, so I haven't had a chance to try the completed kayak out in the Sea of Cortez. It was necessary for us to make an emergency trip back to the States. Hope to get back to it soon so we can get the kayak in the water. Thanks to OneOceanKayaks for the ready help whenever it was needed!
