As a youngster, my Uncle gave me his old wood frame/canvas covered kayak.  My Dad and I removed the old canvas and installed a new cover.  We also added a copper strip down the length of the keel to protect the canvas when coming ashore.
This was a great father/son project and I spent many happy years paddling the Oak Bay waterfront and Elk Lake.
I found plans for a Grand Banks Dory which has detailed step by step photos.  This could be a wonderful family project.  Check out <a href="http://captainbr.doryplans.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=BITTS" mce_href="http://captainbr.doryplans.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=BITTS" target="_blank" title="Build a Dory">Dory Plans</a>
