Preparation The kayak is assembled in five basic stages. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Assemble the bow part of the frame Assemble the stern part of the frame Slide the two parts into the hull and connect together Complete the mid part of the frame Add any additional items such as rudder, sailing gear, padded seat, trolley For the first assembly it is recommended that you complete the frame assembly without inserting into the hull. If you are unfamiliar with folding kayaks this will help you to learn how everything fits together. This will make things easier later when you have to make connections inside...

Assembly: Part 1 – the bow First, locate the parts needed. Figure 2 - Bow Parts (1) Bow stem plate (2) Bow keel (floor) plate (3) Rib (cross-section) No. 2 (4) Port and starboard bow gunwales (5) Bow deck ridge (6) Long stringers with hook (7) Long stringers without hook Start the assembly by inserting the bow stem plate (Part 1 Figure 2) into the bow keel plate (Part 2 Figure 2). (The bow stem plate differs from the stern stem plate in that it is longer and does not have a circular indentation. The bow keel plate differs from the stern keel plate in that the rib positions are marked as 2...

or two millimetres. However, be careful not to remove too much since the connection may then be loose. Figure 3 Figure 4 Figure 5 Next, add rib no 2. (Note, the bow stem plate is considered to be rib no 1). Make sure that the clips click into position. See Figures 6 and 7. Figure 6 Figure 7 Next add the port and starboard bow gunwales. (The bow gunwales differ from the stern gunwales in that they have metal loops at the end rather than wooden plates. The position of their fasteners is also different so it is not possible to fit incorrectly.) See Figures 8 to 13. 6

Figure 14 Next add the bow deck ridge. (The bow deck ridge differs from the stern deck ridge in that the metal end which is intended to fit onto rib No. 3 has a hole in it.) To fit the bow deck ridge, introduce the metal prong at one end into the hole in the bow stem plate at right angles to the intended end position. Figures 15 and 16. Figure 15 Figure 16 Then move the bow deck ridge to the correct position and manoeuvre the dangling cross piece into the intended slots by gently pulling the bow gunwales apart. Finally, rest the bow deck ridge in the slot on the top of rib No. 2. Figures 17...

Next add the bow stringers. (The bow stringers differ from the stern stringers in that they are longer.) Start on one side (port or starboard) by slipping the hooked end into the hole provided on the bow stem plate. Insert the hook from above the hole. If you insert from underneath it is possible that the stringer will slip off the hook during later stages of assembly. You will need to lift the bow from the ground to make the connection. Then add the second hooked stringer onto the other side. Put the bow back on the ground and add the non hooked stringers. The stringers are intended to fit...

Assembly: Part 3 – Insert the bow and stern assemblies into the hull and connect together First lay the hull out flat. Make sure it is on a non abrasive surface. Then, lift up the bow assembly and slide it inside the hull and move it as far as possible towards the bow end of the hull. Be careful not to damage the hull. Then lift up the stern assembly and slide it inside the hull and move it as far as possible towards the stern end of the hull. If the stringers come apart put them back in place after positioning the two assemblies. See Figures 36 to 40 Figure 36 Figure 39 Figure 37 Figure 38...

Figure 45 Simply slide the bow and stern stringers of each side into one cylinder. Next locate the three remaining ribs – Nos. 3, 4 and 5. See Figure 46. Figure 46 Add these in the order 3 then 5 then 4 in the same manner as the other ribs. Then position the stringers in the plastic seats on each of the ribs. They should remain in place. However, if they slip out you may wish to fashion rubber bands to hold the stringers to each rubber seat. Next locate the following parts shown in Figure 47. 13
