Birder II #91 Gets Wet

Recommended Posts


I built a Birder II plan number 58.

My kayak was painted except for the for and aft decks.  My workmanship is not condusive to bright finish.

Beautiful work.  I had made several small dinghys prior to the Birder.

I had many concerns about the bending of expensive plywood.

The others were made of home improvement co lauan.

I have since buiilt a BRS 15.

Again beautiful boat.

LOL, not that RI is big enough not to recognize any town you could have lived in, but I grew up in East Greenwich, lived  in Matunuck (South Kingstown) for a few years while saving up to buy land and build my house in Charlestown.

Being a life-long paddler I find that nothing sets off a shiny new vehicle better than a sleek canoe or kayak perched on the roof.  Your wooden creation is the perfect accessory.

Where in Tennessee would one take a "Damn Yankee"?  I visit my son in the region and am always on the lookout for interesting places to dip a paddle in quiet waters.
