Firefly * A modern Baidarka
Posted 12 July 2010 - 06:53 PM
Then I started working on making the boat more comfortable. Larger cockpit, more footroom, etc. I decided to do a different stern on boat that is more modern than the original. Assuming the numbers are accurate and there are no surprises, this boat should be almost as fast as Long Shot and little more stable. The two boats should be very similar.
I had a client ask me to build him a Long Shot. Since I had the Firefly design almost finished I showed it to him not expecting him to be interested. However, we struck a deal and I expect to start cutting frames latter this week. After lake trials and assuming no surprises the plans will be available shortly.

Here is a link to a few photos I snapped last night of Coy and his new boat.

These are some I took earlier on the test paddle before I meet him.
