Woodenboat Workshop: Day 5

Tammy lays down the law

In a series of short videos over the next seven days, Canoe & Kayak follows first-time kayak builders as they turn boxes of wood, wire and fiberglass into handcrafted wooden kayaks. Today, Tammy explains why she and her husband Matt decided to attend the Woodenboat Workshop. “We should probably take the class if we’re going to built a boat that’s going to be out in the middle of the ocean.”
