First of all, thank you Tom Yost for putting all the design and building information on the web. I built two, one for me and one for Margot, my wife. I haven't waterproofed the zippers yet, so we've been paddling in flat water while we get better skills.

Construction went pretty well as outlined on Yostwerks. I've deviated a few places from plans, that's what I want to expose here.

Many of the links in the articles below point to Aircraft Spruce or McMaster-Carr. I have no affiliation with these suppliers, I'm just used to using them. I include the links to better describe the piece of hardware that I use.
