The low cost, size, portability and ease of
construction make this kayak an ideal group project for Boy Scouts and other
youth groups. Kayak2go.com plans include "group tips" based on experience
in working with our local Boy Scout units. The "group tips"
- guidelines for setting up the kayak project
- tips for building the kayaks as a group
- the use of templates
These tips will make your group kayak
building experience a more rewarding, enjoyable and memorable experience.
In the spring of 2000 we worked with our
local Boy Scout
unit and built thirty four (34) of the 10-foot kayaks. It was a great experience for the
boys, parents and leaders. We have had a lot of fun with the kayaks on
various outings including our summer high-adventure outing.
