Re: ch 17 - putting it of

Posted by Tony Calvert on Oct 6, 2004

I had never made a thing out of wood before I started my CH16 from plans, I followed Mikes "measure twice, cut once" policy and yes there are a couple of minor mistakes that I can't actually name at the moment because I've forgotten what they are. You'll forget all about any mistakes the first time someone comes up to you and comments on what a beautiful boat you have, it's not often if ever you'll get that with a tupperware boat.

There is something special about the first paddle in your new kayak.

The big thing to remember is "it is only a mistake if you can't fix it" and these boats are forgiving when you are building them.

So it is time to get out to the garage and have some fun.

Cheers Tony
