After 17 months of evening and wekend work we finally launched our Chesapeake Double. It was a father and daughter project which doubled as a school project. Because of this we had a deadline to meet and some of the finishing touches are not on it (rudder block/holder and jam cleat for lifting line. It is named after a seaside suburb in Dunedin, NZ rather than a large flat brown mushroom.
Building it has been great fun as well as a steep learning curve. We can't wait to get it out for some extended trips around the harbour. As I have read on other posts, I can see the mistakes, blemishes, drips/runs and strayepoxy blobs, but others say it looks great.
Thanks for the help from fellow forum posters as well as Karin and Steve from Cape Boat Works in Australia. I plan to post construction photos once I get organised.
