The kayak built by Marcelo Lopez

Marcelo published his construction images on this site. With his permission, I re-publshed slightly smaller images on this page. Congratulations to the entire team! And thanks to the radioclub for 'loaning' their instalations.

The initial steps - cutting the panels

... and making the initial stitches.
Deck and hull, separated only by the wires.

Deck and hull closed. The separation for the future cockpit visible.
Finishing the last details of the cockpit

with the help of several assistents
Applying the fibre glass,

and varnish, and the boat is ready for the water...
One finished kayak!

Enjoying the late afternoon.

One kayak resting...
