Most of us don’t have time to make a boat from scratch. But we do have time to make this gorgeous, 30-piece O Six Hundred kayak, which comes ready-to-build in a $1,400 kit.
The pine and cedar frame glues together, while a waterproof carbon shell wraps around the whole package. The complete boat weighs just 22 pounds and is inspired by traditional Inuit boat design.
While the O Six Hundred won’t get you across choppy open water, it’s perfect for after-work voyaging or attitude adjustments on quite lakes or rivers.
