I am a one person business. When you email, or phone, you talk to me directly. No phone trees. No, "Please wait while I find someone who can answer that question."

I'm happy to talk to you to directly to give you my personal service to make certain you get what you want and to tailor my products to your needs.

Tell me your experience level, your size and weight, and what you desire to do with a boat, so I can advise you on the best boat for you. I can take your order immediately on the phone.

I don't accept PayPal or do "Shopping Carts". I don't want your, or my information going into some "cloud" or corporation.

I want to deal with you directly.

Purchasing Instruction Books Separately
You may order the newly updated “Building Instruction Book for Sea Kayaks” or " Canoe Building Secret Instructions" separately, to review the building process and decide whether you will go on to build one of these beautiful boats. Or you may wish to use my building techniques on another designer's plan.
I will deduct $25 from the full plans cost if you wish to go forward with building one of my boats.
For those of you who love the intriguing look, and are excited about the outstanding paddling characteristics of my baidarka designs, but are afraid they may be too difficult for you to build, I’m now including the bow and stern station template for my baidarkas WITH the purchase of the instruction book. So you can now build the bow AND stern of the baidarka BEFORE committing yourself to the full project. Please tell me you are interested in building a baidarka so I will include these pages.

The “Building Instruction Book for Sea Kayaks” sold separately is $25
The " Canoe Building Secret Instructions" sold separately is $25

Building the Baidarka
Bow and Stern

Rob Macks shows you, step by step, how he builds his baidarka bow and stern parts to get you started on the right foot to stripping your own baidarka kayak. This applies to the bow and stern for any of Rob's Star line of baidarkas.

All the information you need to build the beautiful detailed stems of this exotic design.

and ...Stapleless Strip Construction

Rob shows you, how to strip your boat faster and easier than ever before.
No special jigs, tape, or straps and no waiting for glue to dry to keep stripping!

Learn the benefits of using 3/16" thick strips, bend and twist strips with a heat gun to place strips without force, and hold strips with hot glue, for a stapleless method which is fast and easy.

Additional information to help you build a beautiful stapleless strip boat.
