Finally got the Mill Creek in the water this last weekend after about a year of construction. It's been a great project - my first boat but definitely not the last. Have learnt a lot along the way and that's thanks to everyone here on this forum as well as the team at Chesapeake, of course.
There are a few photo's of the construction and launch (on Lake Te Anau, South Island, New Zealand) here:
I just tried to turn that into a link but it didn't work (the link window opened but was completely blank) so you'll have to copy and paste it into another window etc. (sigh, this is the clunkiest forum software I have ever used).
