Its the 13 foot free plan. I want to see how this come out and I want to learn the "how to's" before I start a larger one. I figure if I can swing this with the free plans and it actually floats, purchased plans should be a breeze! I want to do a wood strip next.

Thanks for the replys, will keep loading some pics of the progress.

I did get to pick through the wood. Had some realy nice grain and there are no knots in the sheets at all. Has a reddish tint to the surface too. And you wouldnt believe the price. :wink:
