My wife and I just completed our builds of a Chesapeake 16LT and a 17 LT. Our kits arrived eight weeks ago.
Many thanks to the experts and others on this forum as well as the CLC DVD and manual. They made this a very enjoyable experience. Our boats don't quite have the "pro" finish I read about, but they appear to be functional.
Weights are about 47# for the 16LT and 51# for the 17LT. We do have the rubrails installed. Someday we will try to clean up the drips & runs on the interior and may shave off a pound' or so!
Launching will be in the Adirondacks later this week.
