Chesapeake 17 (LT) Done!

Posted by Chuck on Sep 6, 2006

After building a Chesapeake 17 for myself last year I had to make one for my wife too. We chose the Chesapeake 17(LT) for her. Kit arrived and construction started April 06. Spending as much time as I could building her this summer we got her on the water for my wife's maiden kayak voyage last Saturday on Currituck Sound, North Carolina. We both had a blast and the two Chesapeakes looked great together on the water, especially the C-17(LT) bright red polyurethane hull against my Teal Blue hull! Check out the below link to our C-17(LT) construction photo journal and first time on-the-water pics. Thanks CLC for the great kits and beautifully designed kayaks.
