This site is a record of the process I went through in building a Pygmy Boats stitch and glue kayak kit called Pinguino 145 4PD.  It is 14.5 feet in length with a 25.5 inch beam.  You will find information on this boat at www.pygmyboats.com.   The stitch and glue process is similar with all boats built using this process, so the information here may be of use to anyone building such a boat.  If you use the site and find the information useful please share your thoughts and questions.  Also, I always enjoy pictures of the boats you produce.  In a sense they are my “children”.
