I have received numerous requests ( over 100 ) from fellow woodworkers wanting a final update on a previously posted project so here it is. The boat floats. I took it out over the weekend and it was an amazingly rewarding experience for the 60 days of the labor of love. Just a quick update , I took the kayak out on Sunday and it did a great job on the lake. The conditions were less than favorable. It was very choppy and had strong winds and gusts. Also it was not a good sign as I was unloading that several kayaks were returning because of the windy conditions. I was warned not to go out but I did anyway. It floated and looked amazing. I am rather tall and my coordination is less than perfect so just getting in and out of the boat was challenging. Anyway , it will probably be several weeks until I am able to get back out on the water but I will be video taping the launch and I should have it fully rigged with a spray skirt and everything. I will share this with everyone. I even put a few scratches in it during the baptizing.
Do me a favor , if you read this and you like it , then please hit “favorite” at the top.
Have a great day and go make something! Maybe a kayak , cabinet , or just sawdust!!
