My husband is building a kayak here - one week course. Teacher is extremely helpful & knowledgeable. Lots of time on your feet - first day was 8 - 6:30 - but enjoyable & well worth it.

These folks are the greatest boating /sailing resource I've found. The small sail made by Douglas Fowler is perfect. $460 was very reasonable for such a finely crafted sail. The spars I bought were also superbly crafted. Bravo CLC!
I've built 2 kayaks and a dingy. Kits are excellent, staff is friendly and helpful and directions are well thought out. Completed boats are beautiful and stable on the water. Go for it.
