Welcome to the Duct Tape Kayak Project!
Every year the instructors at KayakDave.com get together to build a “skin-on-frame” kayak made of duct tape and showcase it at local paddling events as a fundraiser for charity. This year the team is honored to have the opportunity to donate 100% of the funds raised by the Duct Tape Kayak Project directly to the Massachusetts Bay Chapter of Heroes on the Water! HOW is a national, grass-roots organization that brings together wounded military personnel for guided kayak fishing excursions at no cost to these warriors or their families. Their mission is to help injured military personnel relax, rehabilitate, and reintegrate into society through their experiences on the water.
We need your help to reach our lofty fundraising goal of $2000.00 by the end of the 2013 paddling season! Please consider making a donation to the Duct Tape Kayak Project to help us support this important and worthy cause! No donation is too small and many local veterans will benefit from it. Here are three ways that you can make your donation:
The best way to make a donation to the Duct Tape Kayak Project is through our online portal at the Duct Tape Kayak Project website. Simply click the donate button and you will be directed to Paypal to make a secure donation via credit or debit card!
Facebook users are also welcome to make donations via the Donations App on our Facebook page! Please note that we incur small charges (~5% of the total donation amount) from the Donations App and Paypal in order to process your donation via Facebook. Consider using another donation option to circumvent these charges and help us deliver the highest yield to our charity.
The Duct Tape Kayak Project welcomes you to mail your donations in the form of a personal check payable to Duct Tape Kayak Project. Please mail your donation to:

Also, be sure to include your contact information (email address) if you’re interested in winning some awesome kayaking gear!
The Duct Tape Kayak will be on display at a series of fundraising events throughout the summer. These events offer an excellent opportunity to see the duct tape kayak first hand, interact with the build team, and learn more about our charity, Heroes on the Water. You will also have the chance to sign the kayak and to participate in mini-raffles! Donations in the form of cash or check will be graciously accepted.
The staff at Billington Sea Kayak also welcomes you to make donations in the form of cash or check at their shop in Plymouth, MA. Chances are that one of the Duct Tape Kayak Team members will be kicking around and we’d be more than happy to give you a sneak peak!
Raffles and Prizes:
Everyone who makes a donation to the Duct Tape Kayak Project will automatically be entered into a raffle to win some amazing prizes including various paddling gear and our new Duct Tape Kayak t-shirts! The drawing will take place once we meet our $2000.00 fundraising goal. The highlight of this year’s raffle is a brand new SeaWhipser Carbon Paddle (210-220cm) thanks to a very generous donation from our friends at Seattle Sports!
Check out our review of the Sea Whisper Paddle and be sure to make a donation to the Duct Tape Kayak Project for your chance to win!
