Well, I really did finally finish my Kayak. It is to be launched tomorrow in a friends pool here in El Paso. Our nearest “Big Water” is 100 miles away in New Mexico and it is drying up on account of the draught. I put a second floor on the trailer to accommodate the Kayak. The additional bracing can be removed if I am not transporting the Kayak. I really enjoyed building both boats and I am sure they will bring many years of fun. After I have played with the Kayak a few times I will give it to my son in California who is an avid surfer. The Canoe will reside in San Diego with my daughter so I can play with it when we visit. With the little 3 1/2 horsepower outboard she really scoots along. Thank you for providibng such keen boats and kits. They are a pleasure to build and use.
