Stitch & Glue Construction Videos



New Hatch Cutting Video!

We have a kayak construction video series created for the Arctic Tern 14, which is available on our YouTube channel. The steps for building the Arctic Tern 14 are very similar to building all of our other boat kits.
To the left is our latest edition,
"How to Cut Hatches."
To see all of the construction videos either click on the red link directly below or select from the
numbered list below that.

Happy building! Arctic Tern 14 construction video sequence
