Greetings, I'm looking for websites on the Baidarka design.
Any recommendations?

Any plans on line?

Hey Doug,

I'll self-pimp here: Baidarka Plans

It's in Hulls format. Tom Yost has Nikumi plans online also. I've built a Nikumi.

George Dyson, who invented the modern baidarka, can be contacted at gbdyson@msn.com

Oddly, despite being the author of a book with the thesis that the Internet is a sentient being, he seems to have no website.

You can easily take the lines out of "The Bark Canoes and Skin Boats of North America" by Adney/Chappelle (Figure 178 is a nice looking boat). Another good source if you can find one is John Brand's "Little Kayak Books". bKr-5 looks nice.

For what it is worth, my study of the bifid bow showed that it was in no way superior to a conventional bow. So, unless you just like then look of the bifid bow you might wnat to give the boat a conventional profie as it would be easier to build.
