    I thought it would've been heavier.

    Stunning!  Nice curves. It's all curves, actually. Don't know how you did it.

    I have a friend that builds canoes like this as well. I am as "in awe" of his craftsmanship as I am of yours on the Kayak. Congrats!

    That is incredible work!


    Here is a little inspiration for your next project. Take a look at Little Bay Boards from Jack M's neighborhood in Petoskey MI. I'm sure he'd admire your work as well!

    There is nothing that beats the beauty of WOOD on the water 


    He is very fortunate, a true family heirloom


    Enjoy :)
