Congratulations mate. I believe this boat is going to be another winner. Sas 16 -33 is a superb canoe. This one will be no different.

Keith, I had the opportunity to play with my 16-33 in some gentle rapids today Not a big drop but quite fast flowing. and I have to tell you that the more I paddle this boat, the more I love it. I am certain that you will love yours also. I am very excited that somebody else has bought the plans to this canoe and will be able to confirm my ravings about it.

This boat is a superior canoe to any canoe I have ever paddled and a better paddle craft than most of the kayaks too.

14 - 30 should be just as good and possibly even better for running down flowing rivers.

to build first? It sure is pretty. My pirogue is coming along ok. I'm
gonna want to build after it.

Compliments, Keith
The 14-30 will be a little easier to build because you only have one splice per panel to deal with.

Thank's for the input Matt, & Hairy. I really like Matt's designs.
The pirogue is a piece of cake to build, cept my slipshod work.
It still came out straight and fair despite me. Sanding, sanding
it fell on the floor. It ain't glassed yet, but nothing broke.

Now this is my kinda deal. I'm not exactly easy on equipment.
The confidence level just went up a couple notches! Kudo's Matt,
your plans an advice are pretty darn good.

The sasquatch is in all it's forms a gorgeous boat. I am leery a
bit about building one/two more maybee. Hairy's turned out really
great. I'm gonna give it a good try. After the pirogue is done.

Compliments, Keith
