To all,

Enclosed are photographs of my completed Power Skiff 14. I've had it on the water for about 4 weeks now and am enjoying it every bit as much as I hoped I would. I have powered it with a Nissan 9.8 hp outboard, chosen primarily for its weight... at about 60 pounds, it's the lightest 10 horse I found.

I found the entire process of building this boat to be very positive. I am pleased with the product, as well as the customer service and support. I would not hesitate to do business with you in the future. If needed, I would happily serve as a reference for your company, or to anyone who may contemplate building this design.

Special thanks are due to Barry for patiently answering all of my questions in a timely manner and, especially, for talking me out of using a dark stain on the mahogany. I kept it natural and it's beautiful! Also, to Gayle, for helping me out in a couple of pinches by expressing me some supplies... I really needed that "handful" of ring shank nails.

Best wishes to you all.
