A replica of a kayak from Baffin Island

It's possible to build any kayak. Sculptor Olav Orud had become infatuated with an East Canadian Inuit kayak, which he wanted to be built in full size. Since East Canadian kayaks are very large, we planned to scale the kayak down about 10% compared to the originals. I prepared materials, and we collaborated on the construction during a course during Spring 2001. 

Olav liked the kayak very well. It looked fantastic and was very seaworthy. However, it wasn't quite neutral for side winds until Olav attached a small skeg. The kayak and Olav on the photo below.

The kayak is finished, and is being tested in a fjord in Vestlandet.

The frame of the kayak is finished and ready to be covered.
