I think it's a boat

It's all put together now.  All the parts have at least a base coat of finish.  I guess it's a boat now!

The varnish shines nicely in the sun.

The mast partner got a layer of fiberglass on it for reinforcement. ( kind of sloppy work though)

I like the blonde wood but it is a little bit heavier than the cedar.

Testing on my neighbor's pond

Still need a rudder rig.  (do you think the skeg is fat enough!)

After testing it on the Pond we put it in the back of the truck and went to the river.  Two of us and the dog and it rowed easily enough from either the forward or aft station.  The dog still can't sit still in a boat.

Took it to the river to see how it rows.  It rows just fine.


Row your boat,

Gently down the stream!!!!

Launch and Naming ceremony yet to come!
