Random Colored Strips
This images shows the "random" colored strips of the standard construction Petrel sea kayak. The kayak is made of narrow strips of western red cedar, edge glued together then fiberglassed. In the "Custom" level of construction these strips all originate from one plank of cedar so the color and grain match. In this case you can see that the individual pieces of wood are slightly different in color. This kayak has been stained with a medium red mahogany color. This serves to draw the colors closer together in tone.
Customers can choose colors and specify particulars such as length and width. This kayak has a very minimal set of deck lines so as to not distract from the shape of the boat. Customers may choose to go with more or fewer decklines. Storage hatches may also be added.
