15 months and one day and my Shearwater 17 Hybrid is loaded on the car, ready for transport for tomorrow's launch The weight came in at 48.5 pounds, including full perimeter riging, bungies fore & aft, CLC mahogany rub strakes, dynel rub strips fore and aft, and a Smart Track rudder and control system. Oh, I also lined the inboard edge of the cockpit coaming with cedar deck stripping material and made the cockpit rim with the same stuff. Take off the extras and I think I came pretty close to the published 44 pounds.
Tommorow she will get her keel wet on Lake Cahuilla, my regular rowing spot here in the California desert. Come July she will taste some lakes in Idaho and hopefully we will meet the CLC gang in Newport Beach at the end of August.
I don't post pictures, but will send some to CLC.
