Recently, an ultra performance 100ft racing yacht, called Comanche, adopted the same style of splines and ribs covered with a skin, although all in carbon fiber. They did so in order to avoid the delamination associated with the grp foam sandwich construction current race boats are using. Your video drove that point home to me. :)

Julia, it's a type of ballistic nylon (8 oz) that is sold by the Skinboat School in Anacortes. They have the best.

Killiii - I ask you about how tough the kayak is - here a video that demos youtube.com/watch?v=3Xb_21OLjHE check it out. I appriciate you showing your kayak toughness test - the video above is about how tough the skin is. Hope this help you out if asked again. My question: what is the difference between the skin type vs stip wood type kayak from your view point, durability, ease of use and preference - even though you do skin type kayaks! Let me know your thoughts.

Kiliii - with the previous question answered - and since I have never kayak on open water - are you ever worried about a tear or leak - and if so what would you do? Also what kayak do you use on rivers then? I have been watching your video on skinning kayaks, a work of art all by itself! Great talking with you thanks. Steven

Hi Steven, the boats here are dedicated sea kayaks so they wouldn't work well on rivers except wide ones. Skin-on-frame river kayaks can be made, however.

Kiliii - good video, good discussion on the subject. Would you use this kind of Kayak on low water rivers / stream runs, or would you move to a strip style kayak - just wondering? Steven

It's great to see young people have interest, and enjoy, the ancient ways. Even if using modern materials, the skills are universal.

So this special nylon, is it Kevlar? or something they made vests out of before Kevlar (spelling could be an issue on Kevlar :) Super high quality build on those, excellent engineering.

Are you being serious? The only sense that they reached Europe 25,000 years ago is the sense in which they hadn't left Eurasia. These kayaks certainly hadn't been invented 25,000 years ago.

Well... eskimos did kill off the scandinavian population in greenland around 1200 i think (off the top of my head, could be 100 years off either way), but I haven't heard anything about them going to the european mainland.
