New guy building two Ravenswoods

Recommended Posts

Almost two months to the day, they are in the water.

I forgot my phone at home and we didn't want to pass hers over the water so we only have photos of the one boat.


Wonderfully stable boats. Even my wife who has only paddled two or three times was instantly comfortable and confident in it.


More shots to come but it's raining today.




This one shows the paddle. Very pretty, works well but too much hard wood to a touch heavier than I'd like.

Will make a great second paddle.

Meh. So it goes, so it goes.

Meanwhile, I really like that top shot, with the bow in it. It is nicely framed and composed, plus the boats are showcased well.

Here's to many happy journeys in your boats together!:)

Everything except building the stringers and painting the dacron was done in my living room so, I was watching TV :)


I had a personal goal to get these done as a fast project so, most everything else in life was set aside.

Oh, and we have no kids :)
if it wasnt for my OCD on the coamings and a snafu in shipping the urethane goop, I could have been done in a month.
