microBootlegger Sport Build Overview Video

Ten months after I started the build, I finally have the final recap video of the microBootlegger Sport build complete. This was a fun build and I still want to make a microBootlegger Sport for myself, but I'm not sure when I will have the time.

Skin-on-Frame microBootlegger Sport - Build Review

This 11 minute video gives a quick overview of the whole process of building skin on frame micrBootlegger Sport sea kayak. As of the time of this video capture I had not fully tested the kayak yet. My goal after more testing is to release plans and kits.

Launching the Skin on Frame microBootlegger Sport

I found a break in the ice on the river by my house to drop the kayak in for a quick trial. There was not enough open water for real sea trials, but I was able to determine that the boat floats upright and is comfortable to sit in and has no obvious bad behaviors. I'll be doing more indepth sea trials later.
