A batty idea

I have been inspired! I saw the 'Duct-tape' sailboat on Mythbusters and I am inspired to try my very own project.

Drum-Roll, please!

The Duct-Tape Kayak! Dum Dum Dah!

Some people might say dumb dumb dumb, but if a sailboat can be built out of the tape then there is no reason a kayak could not be made out of the modern equivalent of hides.

I will, of course, blog and do pictures of the whole process.

At the moment I am considering wooden frame options rather than the welded steel that the Mythbusters used in their sailboat, but it seems to me that there will be less pressure on a kayak hull than a sailing hull.

We'll just have to see, won't we?

I think it will be fun.

Updates to follow, wish me luck.
