Looking real good there, Jimmy! :D
I've been watching your build thread as I'll be starting my South Wind fairly soon. (I've been sitting on the plans for far too long.)

Have you given any thought to "accessorizing" for fishing, or anything else, for that matter?

Thanks guys. No, I haven't given too much thought to accessorizing it. I don't really do much fishing anymore. I will make a portage yoke to clamp onto the coaming for carrying it. I don't plan on carrying it too far, just between the house and the truck and the truck and the water.
Someday, I might add a small removable sail rig and a rudder.
