I think I have to do this. Have been sailing our dinghy lately and having such a blast and while out for a kayak paddle this afternoon it occurred to me that amas for the kayak is something I'd really enjoy. I know Michael Storer has plans for these:
and clcboats has these:
but I'll probably design my own 8 footers and use the sail off our dinghy:
Any advice re lateral resistance, rudder, CE and lead, etc?
I would use this kayak. My own design, very beamy and comfortable. The deck is cheapo door skin and has a couple rot spots so its time to open it up, redesign, reinforce, etc:
