Neon, I'm with Snaps and Matt - how about a formal review covering such things as handling off water/transport, stability (in various conditions), speed, turning/tracking, minimum draft, effect of wind/waves/current, carpark syndrome encounters etc.

Looks like the paddle came a treat too - how about a couple of close ups?

All in all 8)
Cheers, Bob

Laker 13 - christened and slimed (just).

Added 2 small skeggs to the paddle board. 2x20" long (not deep lol) and tapered them towards the front. The reason for 2 was it meant that they could be sacrificial rubs rails and also help hold the dolly in place. I will post more pics soon but I can tell you this...this thing is awesome! Matt you designed one heck of a paddle board. It is so stable that I can stand on top of my crate and fish from it! Turn around 360 degrees no problem. I am not kidding. I have nick named this thing the "cruise liner" this thing is like a ship. Its awesome!

Have next week off for spring break so we are planning a trip and I will try to get some good picks and video.

We went out to the park yesterday and my wife took a few picks of me and Caden messing around.
