It paddles nice, much nicer than store bought canoes.

With lines that graceful it would have to paddle well. Looking forward to seeing your blog on the kayak build!

Very well done. The only thing I dislike about building strip boats is the sanding the epoxy! But they are sooo pretty!

Awesome! A wood canoe or kayak is on my bucket list. I was planning on using thin marine grade plywood, and then epoxy/fiberglass overtop of that.
