Thread: Dog kayak

    I am interested in building a stitch and glue kayak and modifying it so that it has a removable hatch, so that I can flat water kayak with my 80 pound dog. I would like the design to be versitile enough that I can easily trip without the dog too if I want to. Is it possible to modify plans for this slight adjustment and what kayak plans would be the most adaptable?

    If the total weight of you and the dog is under 250 lbs you could probably try the Aquarius Seascape. I would put the dog immediately behind the cockpit, and perhaps move the cockpit forward a few inches. Otherwise you may have to go for a double such as the Glen L Sea Kayak II or the Chesapeake Double. Of course you would have to teach the dog to paddle.
