That looks pretty freaking slick. It might tempt me into building another one just for the heck of it, just beautiful.

I just can not get over how stable this boat is, how well it paddles and how much gear it will haul. I can't imagine needing another boat for anything. Good thing I enjoy building them or I might be finished.

Quick update. After sanding half the fiberglass off of the hull and replacing it during the build I thought I had the problem fixed. Turns out several more places turned loose on the original fiberglass. I have spent the last month or so sanding the hull down to wood and now have new glass installed with two fill coats. It won't be too long now and she'll be back on the water. Will post pics later. need to get this wrapped so I can start my wifes new boat before she bugs me to death about it.
