Finished and splashing tomorrow or Saturday

My MC 16.5 is done!  I started on April 3, 2010 and finished today, June 17, 2010.  I'm going to take a few moe photos of it in the water this weekend.

Jeff

I stumbled upon your posts and found them interesting.  Great Job

What color is that on the hull.?

 To answer you post about hitting dead line; I bought my shearwater hybrid last may on my 51st birthday with goal to finish by my 52 May 17, now it looks like I'm going to paint my hull and I doubt that I'll be done in time....oh well

how is your MC handling?

RE: Finished and splashing tomorrow or Saturday

It looks nice. What did you use as an overlay? So have you named your pirate boat?

Congrats, I finished mine a few weeks ago and have had it out several times. It's very stable, even in the ocean, and faster than the tupperware doubles. Mine is a hybrid so heavier I think than the ply deck MC16.5. I wish it were lighter but once it's in the water the weight seems to be an advantage. It's rock steady and tracks very well. Thought I might need a rudder but that does not seem to be a problem. Hope you enjoy yours as well as we do.

Great boat-love the overlay...ARRRR Matey!

RE: Finished and splashing tomorrow or Saturday

Hi Guys,

I was thinking about taking my yak out for a paddle and decided check in here to see what is happening.  Surprisingly, I see a few quesitons about my MC 16.5.  The paint is Brightsides and I believe it was called dark blue or navy.  The overlay is Sapele Pommele.  I still plan to install the sliding seat and use her as a rowing boat.  I've got a serious desire now to build a wood duck.

 

This is the project I'm trying to finish now.  I have few more weeks worth of work.

OK, I'll try again.  I have possibly forgotten how to post photos.

RE: Finished and splashing tomorrow or Saturday

OK, you can see 3/4 of her.  That's enough to see she is made of wood.

Jeff,

 

Does it paddle well?  :-)

Seriously, real nice!
