It was the late 2006 version with some dimension changes after comments from HM down under. The Wadefish did not plow like a boat with too much weight in the front. I'll have to let someone else paddle it this weekend to really comment on it. Tracked great! The the space under the bow deck is cavernous. My insulated fish bag fits perfectly.

Wife's job screwing up my plans again...

Think we could get together some weekend? I'd really like to see the boat.

Took the Wadefish to the coast this past weekend for a kayak fishing / camping trip. She performed beautifully. I'm done except for the glossy varnish finish. See ya!

Fish on!! It was catch and release weekend, saving one speckled trout (Spotted Sea Trout) for dinner. One red drum towed me for a few minutes before being released.

I'm pleased with the anchor trolley system. I can position the anchor on either end by sliding the line on the left side. I also used a ski pole with the basket removed to jam through a loop on the trolley line and into the shallow bay bottom to keep from getting blown around. Good luck to all, fun to build, great to paddle, kudos to Matt!

Your boat is simply beautiful. Congratulations!! I see you have a wood paddle, did you make it? How does it compare to the bought variety? Thanks

J, thanks! It's Grey Owl that I've had for about 10 years. Very inexpensive then. They've upgraded to carbon fiber ferrules. It's the Sirocco model, very easy to refinish when dinged up and scratched. http://www.greyowlpaddles.com/pages/kayak.html
