Here are some pictures of my first build. Please let me know what you think (good,bad or ugly). So far I have not made any big mistakes. This being my first build I chose to use Luan in case I really screwed up it would not be so expensive. I did sand thru the thin stain layer of the Luan, that is the purpose of the paint scheme on the hull. I wanted a natural finish and this is the only way I could think of to hide the places I over sanded. The hull is fiberglasses inside and outside and the bottom is grapite coated. The Freedom 15 is next, plans arrived yesterday. :lol:

Ron,
I am dying to finish it so I can get on the river. We will have to get together sometime. I'm not sure I'm as tough as Kim. We may have to wait and catch a warm day. :lol:

Darrell,

Looks to me like you have a boat there that you will enjoy. Go ahead and paddle with Ronnie - you can believe almost everything he says. Except, maybe that part about no rocks in the Brazos.
