with their quality in the mist of the big guys. Today I witnessed yet another build that blew me and hundreds more away with the quality of workmanship. Enjoy and hopefully the builder will chime in over the next day or so.

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

WOW!!! :shock: nice job!!! that puts mine to shame :oops: how did he do the coaming? he must have routed a groove in it to fit onto the sides. I sure hope he checks in. I have a million questions.

Your boat is just fine and also a fine example of attention to detail. The best part of these boats will be that the grandkids will always remember Papa, or in this case their Papas. The coaming is one tight laminated part, flawless for sure to these eyes anyway in the five foot examination. The only thing that I saw missing was the natural "character flaws" as we call them thats headed its way from repreated use of the little folks and the in water smiles, which hopefully will follow here.

Oyster,
Thanks for taking the great pictures and very humbling commentary. It was great fun at the show and the build was very satisfying. My daughter and her husband kayak and take my grandson with them in one or the others boat. Not the best situation so, hey what a great opportunity to build a kids kayak.

I want to thank all the great boat builders for their inspiring remarks. That boat show has lit the fire and I'm getting ready to start the V-Dory. A bit bigger of course but I have support from the higher authority here and it's a go (I'm sure most of you know who that may be...). I will be blogging the progress and hope to get much needed guidance in this uncharted water from the Ol' Tars in the forum.

Again, Thanks all
