Print Your Own Kayak

Here's something exploding across the interwebs in the last couple of days (I first spotted it at Paddling Headquarters). Jim Smith at Grassroots Engineering has made what he believes to be the world's first 3D printed kayak. It cost about $500 to make, and is composed of 28 printed 3D sections, plus some screws and caulking, and weighs in at about 65 pounds.
