Our Courier  & Totem Kayak Kits are customised to build any design from Redfish Kayaks, One Ocean Kayaks, Laughing Loon Kayaks, Guillemot Kayaks, Green Valley Boat Works/Redwing Designs, & Bear Mountain Boats  or any other designs out there.  They are tailored utilising the designer’s building methods in whole or in part.

Plans for making the moulds are not included but may be purchased direct from the designers via their websites as many people prefer to make their own moulds. Our speciality is in the precision milling of Cedar strips and other harder to source essential wood components required to build an elegant craft utilising West Coast cedar and quality Hardwoods.

Stems if required for some designs

  • Inner (Yellow or Red Cedar) unless otherwise specified.  They are easier to bend & shape to support the ends of the strips during planking.
  • Outer ( Yellow Cedar, Ash, Cherry or Walnut) because of their strength.                  
  • For more detailed info go to  Stem strips.


Shear Clamps if required for some designs

  • Yellow Cedar unless otherwise specified.  
  • Rub rails are not necessary and can be easily omitted eliminating punturing the hull with screws. 


Coaming Materials as per designers specs

  • 1/8″ Yellow Cedar, Ash, Cherry, Walnut veneers for Cockpit Coaming & Coaming Lip
