    Hello all!

    Glad to be a new member here, I've been lurking for some time.

    I have some boat building experience, mostly small wooden kayaks and dories. I am familiar with the stitch and glue method of construction.

    I am in need of a sea kayak for Lake Michigan and Lake Superior and frankly cannot afford a $2000 boat. Thanks to the industry I am in I have access to extremely cheap fiberglass cloth, epoxy, and other materials. Because of this I decided to try my hand at building a fiberglass boat.

    I have done a fair amount of reading concerning various construction methods and these seem to be my options:
    -A foam mold with fiberglass laid upon it
    -A wooden skeleton with shrink wrap laid on it and epoxy on that
    -A commercial of self-made mold

    I think I am competent enough to give it a go, and am aware that mt first few attempts may be failures.

    To the point - I am in need of a sea kayak mold, preferably 14-17 feet in length. Thanks!!
