Plans for the Tik Tak Ten-ish Kayak
Tik Tak Kayaks are silly little boats designed specifically
to be cheap and easy to build, while at the same time, being safe
and easy to use. They seem to be able to be made any length -
our first design was eight foot, the next was 12. The Tik Tak
Eight was too small for more than one paddler. The Tik Tak Twelve
required another sheet of plywood and didn't really make good
use of it. The Tik Tak Ten-ish seems a good compromise - room
for two while making very economical use of wo sheets of plywood.
This boat lends itself to mass builds with unskilled
workers. The parts are very easy to cut ahead of time and final
assembly is dead simple.
