OK, I finaly got up the guts to show all my horrible mistakes on my first build. Would anyone like to see pics. Everyone tells me the boat is beautiful, and, ultimately, it is, but I know everything that's messed up about it. Regardless, I certianly had enormous fun with the entire process. And my boat is very strong, and light. I dropped it accidentally from on top of my shoulders and it slammed on to the ground and me with it, no damage. Everyone yells "beautiful wood", and "nice canoo", I guess not a lot of folks know about kayaks around hear.
Thanks so much!
