Not to single out Jackson kayaks only but thought this was a neat video to see how they go about making our vessels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVnA-TXlk-M

Got to love that rotational molding.
I had a class in that in college, but it was a much smaller roto-molding machine.

Dang... I sure have spent a lot of money for a few buckets of plastic beads.
