Iluka Sea Kayak 5.2m LOA Plan or Kit (not precut)

Starting at: $140.00

The Iluka sea kayak is a contemporary plywood design based on the 5.2m length and 575mm beam dimensions favoured by many of the dedicated sea kayak enthusiasts. These proportions give a responsive boat with good stability, able to cruise at a high speed. Compared to the earlier 5.5m, 650 mm beam design, this narrower hull should be much easier to Eskimo roll, a good safety feature offshore when this technique is used as a defensive or recovery measure in awkward seas. The high bow helps the kayak lift over choppy water, and the veed single chine hull form gives a shape that can be controlled with normal paddling techniques and does not require a rudder or skeg, although they can be fitted if preferred. With the rounded deck and sweeping sheer line, this becomes a simple but elegant craft, capable of undertaking challenging voyages. Iluka’s hull is made by the stitch and glue method, with taped and filleted seams at the chine and keel. The hull is also reinforced with a layer of fibreglass cloth. Bulkheads are filleted into the hull, with the compartments at either end foam filled for strength and permanent buoyancy. The layout includes two large major stowage compartments and a smaller one behind the cockpit. Panels for the Iluka are cut to the offsets and layout included with the plans, using 4 sheets of ply. The hull is made from 4mm thick Gaboon plywood, the deck is 3 or 4 mm thick. Hatches, bulkheads and coamings can also be cut from the material not used for the major panels. The basic craft can be assembled over a few weekends.
