This is a set of drawings I produced while trying to replicate the hull form of the commercially produced Tahe Greenland kayak in the skin-on-frame construction method. These are not a set of formal plans. They are intended to guide a builder, with some experience in the skin-on-frame building process, to follow a path of exploration into re-creating this popular hull form.
These drawings are not intended to provide information that would infringe on any proprietory intelectual property. They are intended to assist in building a traditionaly constructed kayak inspired by the Tahe hull form which was in turn inspired by the traditional Greenlandic kayak hull form.
There will be a video companion to these drawings on my YouTube channel which follows me throughthe process of building one of these kayaks at 1/3 scale.
This package includes six printable pdf documents:
A lines drawing measured from a Tahe kayak
A deck feature drawing measured from a Tahe kayak
A full sized cockpit mould and gunnel spreaders drawing
A framework drawing
A details drawing
A builders notes document
