This was my winter project. Just had the maiden voyage and I managed to fall into the lake on entry of the kayak the first time trying not to scratch it, quite comical. Wet as I was I got back on the horse so to speak. The kayak tracked very well and I had a great time.

Beautiful result and even more impressive seeing where it was built.

I like it! Thanks for showing the process. I never would have thought to use zip-ties where you did.

Very cool. I wish I had the patience for that kind of project.
