Rear construction of Tom's two-seater Baidarka. The inset shows how Tom laced the skin and used a velcro seal to prevent water from coming in. At least in my case, this was not completely watertight. Take care. On the other hand, this is what I also used for the first try, and I guess many more of us did so. It works.

Length 21 ft. Width 28 in. Weight 65 lb. Construction time: 150 hr.
