Morning Folks, I'm in the middle of building a yak for my nephew. He lives in Richmond Va. and I'm a bit south in Jax, Fl. so I thought I'd do a blog so he can check in on the progress. He's a great kid, all about hiking, fishing, hockey, camping and even makes the honor roll at school! Pardon the bragging... This is the first time blogging for me and the learning curve is a bear but what a neat way to document and share the build. As much as I cuss this computer I have to admit sometimes it's pretty cool. Feel free to look around - the shop is a mess but hey, it's pretty busy in there lately. I was tempted to build a smaller boat but his dad asked for something with growing room. I put a hole in the bow/stern for ropes figuring he may need a tether on a windy day. Just finished stitching the deck and hull together and going to give it a rest this weekend, looks like we have a few days of rain coming up from Cuba so next week should see some progress. http://woodonwater.wordpress.com/ Yeah, I can handle and even appreciate criticism!
