You must be over the moon, The boat looks great. From the look on your daughters face, you'll be building another soon.
Congratulations mate. Enjoy it.

Scott,

Congratulations mate! That is the prettiest sit on top kayak I have ever seen!! 8)

Beautiful job mate - stunning. She allways looked fast to me and to see you powering her through the water confirmed it.

Matt, Congratulations to you too mate. I really think you should list this one. There is a definate market out there for a very good SOT that is suitable for smaller people. I think this fits the bill and would prove very popular. :D
Regards,
Mick

Matt,
I agree with Mick. You did a fantastic job on this design! It is absolutely perfect! It's light, fast, stable, and tracks dead-on. My daughter handled her with ease and loves her. Smaller guys like me, women, and kids will find this a great boat.

If you go any faster then in this picture (I like that bow wake it is throwing) you will need a windshield on the front deck.

One beautiful fishing machine and fun boat. :D

He's towing his daughter on water skis here. She's out of the picture. :)

Scott - nice job. And, a tip of my hat to you for involving your daughter. The torch is being passed. Build those Father-Daughter bonds while you have the chance. Those roots will help here later when she has to develop wings, and fly away from Mom and Dad.
