Sweet rig, did you use any flotation foam in bow or stern?

Thanks, no foam in this thing. Going to use those compartments for storage. Planning on making my own hatch covers. Possibly 4 separate storage areas. We will see what happens!

Oh, and all the classmates looked really good. Everybody had a great time. And it got kind of crazy!

Let my brothernlaw use the boat today. He had no problems standing up in it, even with his shorts on fire lol! Everybody that has paddled this boat has had nothing but good things to say. Now I just need to finish it :lol:

Very nice work! The 12 looks like a very nice well balanced design. A great version of the legendary Sabalo. I love the strip decking. It would tempt a man to make room in the garage again.... :D
