Jasså du har ett så fantastiskt bygge, jag släktas på en byggmästare jag med. Kanske det här löser endel problem. Tack för fina råd. Man kan ju försöka och se om det flyter.

Gostaria de confeccionar um caiaque, e achei muito interessante seu modelo, é possível você mandar um projeto desse modelo para que eu possa fabricar um aqui no brasil. mandar via e-mail. Muito obrigado

I do not understand your mail. I have many kayak models, which one are you referring to? Do you plan to build one for yourself or are you interested in starting a production? And, if so, is it one of my available kayaks you are thinking of or a new special design? And the material: wood strip, composite, plastic etc? And you might want to contact me via email instead (the contact page).
