Wood and Canvas Kayak

I’m thinking of building a wooden Kayak with canvas covering. Has anyone had history with them? are they very durable? How do they handle?

I have a canoe now and would like to try kayaking but don’t want to sink a 300-400 dollars.

Do a search here for "SOF"
aka Skin On Frame. As inexpensive as they are, $300 is probably about right for a SOF. You’ll be hard pressed to make one for much less unless you’re already into wood working and have most of the materials.
