Hi all seeking some knowledge.
Im going to build an 8ft canoe/kayak/pirogue. I know nothing about boat building. But have been on about it for years. Need something small for transporting by hand so in my search I finally came across this.
My question is is it necessary to fibreglass the hull? Very limited budget (£80-£100 max) any and all advice welcome, apart from buy one secondhand. Making it is part of the fun
