We are building kayaks with the boyscout troop and I am hooked. I am having a great time building my boat, but more important is the fun I am having teaching the scouts how to use the tools in order to turn plywood into beautiful boats. These kids are doing an amazing job, and this is a lot more fulfilling than the typical "Highschool Shop Class" book ends that they have had to endure. The enthusiasm really kicks in when that bunch of flat wood gets spread out and starts to take shape as the wires are applied. The next spike comes when the glass is applied to the hulls and they can see what the color and grain will look like. Then another peak when the deck goes on and the beautiful curves show themselves for the first time. We are scheduled to go to Canada on a 7 day trip through the lakes there. I am hooked good!
