Your kayak is a hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind craft that requires about 80 hours of work.

The price for most kayaks is $1750. More complicated designs, such as a baidarka, are $2000.

You must be available for at least two fittings and for taking delivery of your kayak, which, realistically, requires that you live near St. Paul, MN, or travel here with some frequency.
