After 4 month's of dedicated hard work, I have finished my boat including picking out in my opinion, the proper roof rack, and wall mount storage system . For the roof rack I used the Yakima Bowdown, works very nice and thickly padded all over. For garage storage I used the Talic Kayak Condo which cradles the kayak on it's side via 2" wide straps with no surfaces of the kayak touching anything but the straps. Simple and functional for protecting your finish. If you have time, check out my blog which chronicles the complete build up from start to finish. Before I started my boat, I did countless searches on the net picking up tips from many different builders blogs and websites and utilizing or integrating bits and pieces of many builders ideas into my Shearwater. This project was challenging, yet very rewarding when you can see the boat coming together after many different stages and then finally the finished product.
