Good for you, it looks nice on the water and it looks like it's nice and level. I guess I'm just a sucker for wood, I really like the look of your strip canoes and while this one still looks good it...

It looks like lots of progress being made. I sanded through the wood in a couple of spots on my last canoe, but that's life. I'm sure yours will turn out well. Can you take your red Kite if the...

I'm sorry to hear about the weight, that must be a bit frustrating. The use of scraps is a sign of thrift, in my opinion, and therefore nothing to regret. I did a similar thing with the fiberglass...

That's a lot of ballast. I would have been worried about that much weight deflecting the outer skin too, but it looks like it worked for you. I know when I buy foam chair cushion material it comes...

It's looking good, I'll be interested to see how it goes on. I can't remember anymore how to tell one end from the other, except for the amount of rocker and that would be hard to tell when it's...

The hull looks great, I'm amazed at how well it retained the shape. I don't have much experience with foam, but I hope it will do what you want it to. Thanks for keeping on with the updates, I am...
