I just wanted to share a rough draft, I quickly threw together in PowerPoint, designed primarily from rowerwet instructions and adjusted to more closely match a crafted kayak design. In designing this, the biggest question that was raised was the location of the seat. It seems that the back of the seat at 6 (backward) from the center of the kayak seems too far forward, so the design shows a seat moved back and forth.

We relied simply on the intuition and the little we could learn about boat designs from distant times and places. The result: a successful boat that far exceeds our greatest hopes. Hina sails beautifully! During a two-and-a-half-mile, 400-mile cruise around Lake Michigan, in all kinds of conditions, she kept us safe, dry and reasonably at ease. In heavy weather, she easily took waves of five and six feet and her classic lines attracted admirers to each port. Despite the cultural diversity of our planet, some practices in the arts of navigation and boat design have remained almost universal.

Corten Steel: For smaller steel containers that must use 10 gauge steel for plating, a very good case can be made for the use of Corten steel. Corten has about 40% more elasticity limit than mild steel. This means that the 10 gauge Corten plate will resist the distortion and dent of the weld more or less the same as the 3/16 "mild steel plate. lasticity is the main justification for using Corten steel for metal boats.

Since the hull is 12 feet long and the PVC pipe is only 10 feet, I find it preferable to start at the end, with one end of the hose on the station twelve, the bricks holding it halfway to the 14-inch mark.

The fact that aluminum is faster to manufacture and weld helps to reduce this ratio after taking into account labor costs. Aluminum being much lighter than steel, it is possible to use a much larger plate thickness. Can the overall strength be greater than that of steel, but the distortion levels can be much more easily manageable. In doing so, of course, the cost will be proportionally higher. The aluminum alloys for boats are generally limited to the 5000 and 6000 series.
