CA, nice to have met you and your familiy. Let me know the next time you plan to be in the area. We can go catch a few reds and trout in some of my hot spots of the Shamrock Cove area. Bring your Swamp Girl.

You have more courage and conviction than I. I could never bring myself to build a boat, and then cut holes into it.

:lol: That's why I built this boat. I can allways patch it, and you would never know that it was there. I would never cut or drill holes in the plastic kayaks that I had. I knew that I would want to change it.

Finally got the Sabalo finished enough to try out. Took it out on the water yesterday evening. Other than a few issues, such as my rudder controls, it performed very well. Posted a few more pictures.
