Hey Loafer, yes, i have been haunting his site, I am a Tandy Leather Re-seller, so i'll get my sinew there. He has several different fabrics and that's nice. I'll cross that bridge when i come to it i guess. I have purchased plans for a Percy Blandford PBK-10, which is eleven feet long, and should be able to make a nice day boat/ light weekend camping boat in the 20-25 Pound range.
My primary goal is to have a little day-use boat that I can load and un-load with less effort than the REALLY NICE pirogue that Swampwood made for me a few years ago. That Pirogue is a great boat...stable, easy to paddle, great carry, tracks nice, carries a TON of stuff or people with east. But, it's getting more difficult for me to load onto the truck rack.
I'm looking forward to building and taking part here again., It's been a few years. piper
