Thanks to Lazlo and everyone that posted such helpful tips on the Builder's Forum and Tips for Boat Builders. My first build went very well and needless to say I'm extremely pleased with the finished product. Yesterday's maiden voyage on a small local lake was pure bliss as the boat handled incredibly well and the compliments I got from people at the lake made all the work worthwhile! Thank you CLC for producing a kit of such high quality and providing the support and instruction to make the concept of building your own kayak a reality.
BTW - Where do you go to post a picture of your kayak? The "Insert/Edit Image" icon doesn't provide for pasting a .jpeg.
