Small Boat Design

Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.

Which design and where do I get plans?

I have a doctor friend who is passionate about traversing the waters between russia and the north american continent. He has asked me to do a little research and then together we will build a kayak with which he will fulfill his passion. If anyone can help me it would really be appreciated. I have a fairly extensive knowledge of woodworking, however, I have never build a strip kayak. I believe I am up to the challange, but need info as to which kayak design to build that will allow him the storage to carry the provisions he will need as well as one that will provide the stability and support he will need for such an expedition. I will look forward to hearing from anyone who responds. Thank you. Jeff Fretheim
