  •  Sawfish, a lightweight foam kayak (23 lbs). Free DIY kayak plans for a hardware store sourced boat.

    Thank you very much for your response. I wanted to pass this gem along to you as I think that I'm going to make this foam cutter first before making the kayak: http://lifehacker.com/cut-and-shape-styrofoam-efficiently-with-this-diy-styr-1754128419?utm_campaign=socialflow_lifehacker_twitter&utm_source=lifehacker_twitter&utm_medium=socialflowI feel like this would speed things up a lot over all.

    Fist, this is a really cool idea and design. I've been eyeing an inflatable kayak for ease of transportation. For the price point however, this does more for a lot less price wise and transportation weight wise. The truth is, I could build 7 of these for less than the inflatable that I've been eyeing and it will be lighter and faster to boot. Nicely done.Do you think that it would it be possible to turn this into a sit-inside design? Do you think that it would be worthwhile project?

Have you perhaps already rigged something like this up yourself so that we could take a look at it or know where we could find someone who has? Sorry for all of the questions. This is an amazing project and I plan on building one about two months from now when things slow down a bit.
