This was her maiden voyage to Long Lake, It took just under a year to build and I am addicted to cedar strip building, I have a kayak I am working on now.

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

Beautiful project! I’ve always admired hand built boats.

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

Nice boat neighbour. I’m in Cowichan Bay.
Good to see another boat on the water and another woodworker addicted to building them. :-)

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.
