Have you looked at any of the Pygmy boats?
I guess the other question would be, how much wood working have you done. Not that it is necessary to be an expert, but it wouldn't hurt. Anyway, if your experience is somewhat sparse, it might be better to go for one of the easier stitch and glue models as opposed to a stripper.
My other suggestion is that if you are not good at taking on a project and sticking with it to completion, consider another course. Are you going for it because you want a kayak, or because you want a project?
I am a very experienced wood worker and have a shop full of equipment, but I have never built a boat and I have no ambition to do so. I let the experts at NC Kayaks build my new boat and I'd do it again and again without hesitation, but that's just me.
