be interesting to see if any performancr difference between this and the Luann ply buillt boat, certainly is when it comes to carrying them :!: 54.5 lbs versus 35.4 lbs.

Wow
Man you did a fantastic job on that boat, I will have to hide mine when you put yours out.
I bet you find very little difference in paddling performance, you will see a big difference in how it handles the wind.
Great job

Dang !! John, you're putting out those boats on an assembly line, I see another one over to the right that you're also working on. As usual, fantastic job on the TV. I put fiberglass on the outside of mine yesterday and it sure looks good. Hope to have it done soon. I just need to make up my mind how big I want my decks. I think I'll paddle it in it's basic style for a while, I need to be paddling.
