Two Chesapeake LT's completed

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.

Wow, 8 weeks!  I started on a single Mill Creek 16.5 on April 3 that I plan to launch on Father's Day.  I thought I was making good time, but you have shattered my effort with two yaks in 8 weeks.

Wow! Those are some very nice kayaks! I like the idea of building two at a time. Congratulations on your success!

Nice lookin boats. Two in 8 weeks- it sounds/looks like you must be retired> Nice to have something else to do. Have fun with them.
