Love the boat. It's a great design. I wish I had used a bit tougher of a paint, but this stuff is easy to touch up at least. The Sabalo is a real winner of a craft.

I put it upside down mostly because I haven't yet bought a set of the kayak cradles for my rack, but because of the flat decks, it is an easy boat to store upside down, too.

I was thinking that with this boat, if you're going to completely glass it outside, you can probably use 1/8 okume, though that stuff can be difficult to get smooth curves with. The extra thickness of the glass should result in the same hull thickness as 3/16 okume sans glass.

No you don't! I made that offer first and I'm closer and willing to haul it so he doesn't get embarrased by people seeing him with it :mrgreen:

I'm thinking he needs to name this yak . . . "BAD BOY."

possibly you should send that pitiful excuse for a yak to a Canadian so you can get it out of your fine US waters. I will volunteer in the interest of International unity and friendship.

What a gorgeous boat, I fine job. Tight lines
