My name is Steve Coyte.  I live in Kernersville, NC.

I created this site so I could document the construction of my first wooden kayak, a Wood Duck 12 designed by Eric Schade and sold by Chesapeake Light Craft in Annapolis, Md.  The Wood Duck is a recreational kayak designed for comfortable, relaxing paddling in sheltered waters. This kayak is built from mahogany plywood which makes her very pretty as well as light weight and strong.
