Sinissippi Boats, LLC – Hand Crafted Wood Kayaks, Canoes & SUPs

If you want a fine mahogany Pygmy kayak, canoe, or Stand Up Paddle-board (SUP) but don’t want to or can’t build it yourself, I will build it for you.

I have built many kayaks from Pygmy Boats. These are very well designed and beautiful boats, but are only sold as “kits.” Theoretically, anyone can build one. However, not everyone has the place, time, inclination, patience, skill, or tools, to build one. That’s where I come in. I can tell you from experience that it takes a few builds before you really get it down. In addition, it really helps to have a shop designed for building boats, and to have good tools (I use Festool, DeWalt, Fuji, etc.).  I don’t do this for the money. Given the number of hours it takes, that would be impossible. I do it because I am retired and I enjoy doing it.

Recognized by Pygmy Kayaks – Official Builder List ( In addition, I have been asked by Pygmy to display my kayaks at Canoecopia, the largest paddling expo in the country, held yearly in Madison, Wisconsin.

I will build any boat by Pygmy in my fully equipped shop located on Lake Sinissippi in Hustisford, Wisconsin. Check out the Pygmy boat kits at their website at
