I guess I didn't sign up correctly. You can see one of my valid (non-web based) e-mail addresses in the response to LeeG. Let me know where else I should post it.
RE: the differences between the Chessie and the Hawk - after I posted my original note I remembered that I did paddle a Chessie at one of the Wooden Boat symposia. If I were to build one, I'd cut down the sides - but as you wrote, the width is a bit wider than I've become used to. The Hawk, the Shearwater, or maybe the Merganser 18 (same as Shearwater but a foot longer, I presume)Will most likely be my next boat.
