The Buccaneer build is done. My grandson was very happy when I said I would build him a kayak. I asked what color he wanted it to be, natural wood, like mine or something else. He said something else, camo. After I had the camo figured out, I started calling it the Predator.

I finished it last night and showed up at his house this afternoon to get her wet for the first time. He ran to get his paddle that I got him for is birthday, and we left for the Rainbow River.

The Buccaneer Predator set sail this afternoon. You couldn't wipe the smile off that boy's face with 60 grit sandpaper.

And he is off and paddling

After a little instruction, like turn the paddle over, so you can read the label, we headed for the headsprings.

Well after taking in the sites and wildlife, it was time to head home.

Have fun out there and keep the open side up!!!

Great!

He's looks happy as a clam. I bet you could raise his seating position up a few inches and he'd be able to paddle easier. Should still be very stable.
