Wood Duck Hybrid’s hull is identical to the standard Wood Duck’s, with computer-cut BS 1088 Okoume panels assembled with “puzzle joints” so it goes together very, very quickly.  Computer-cut molds are set into the hull with temporary hot glue.  These molds shape and support the deck during construction.  With the kit, we include precision-milled bead and cove Western Red & Alaskan Yellow Cedar strips.  The strips are milled with a “bead and cove” joint so that one slides into the next for perfect joinery.
