Finished the outer hull fiber-glassing this weekend. Now time to remove it from the strongback & start on the inside. Some have asked about the bit used. It is a two in one bit in that it cuts the bead & the cove.

Outstanding job! It should be effortless to paddle. Wish I had one! It’s on my to-do list.

Whoa, that is beautiful! At the rate your going you should be ready to ‘float’ just when the weather gets nice. Please, keep us informed.

That is certainly the nicest looking canoe I have ever seen. Wow! Great stock selection. Looks like it will just slice through the water like a hot knife through warm butter!

One of these is on the to do list. (How long a list it is.)

Looks great.

Great to see the progress. Can’t wait to see it gliding through a glass flat lake or quick little stream.
