I have had Long Shot on the water and I am impressed! I know it sounds like advertising or bragging but I really am impressed with this boat. The resistance numbers from the beginning have indicated it was a going to be an easy to paddle boat and have good speed potential. Now that is on the water it's obvious that the numbers were not a mistake. I am not a particularly strong paddler but I can tell I am faster and capable of cruising at higher speeds.
The boat tracks well but not as tight as my other designs. What really surprised me was how well it responded to edging. It turns easier than VARDO or Curlew despite it's longer length. It is quickly becoming my new favorite boat! I have a couple of small changes to make to the plans on some changes I made when I built it and it's ready for you to build your own.
