This kayak was designed with a five inch waterline to carry: a boat built to 50 pounds, a 200 pound paddler, and 50-pound load. If you want a more sporty sea kayak with less volume, consider the Siskiwit LV sea kayak plans.
The free cedar kayak plans come as an A1-sized pdf (free Adobe Reader required to view) that you can print off at photocopy stores.

The .dxf file can be printed over multiple sheets with QCad, an inexpensive CAD program with a free trial period. Note on sheerline: This kayak is designed so the deck and hull seamlessly join in one smooth curve. Cedar Strip Siskiwit Bay designed by Bryan Hansel is an excellent all-around British-style kayak.

Bryan Hansel is a freelance writer, award-winning photographer and an American Canoe Association L4 Open Water Coastal Kayaking Instructor.
