I have moved away from the strip-built canoe/kayak construction, at least for a while. I took up sailing a few years ago and in Aug 2016 completed a 20′ sailboat, The Earl Craig. This Iain Oughtred Sooty Tern design is a double ended sail & oar craft and what a joy to sail! Take a look at Sooty Tern Build website.

My last kayak building project, a Spring Run kayak (Redfish Kayak design) for my wife, can be seen here Boat Builds area or visit our Spring Run Building Blog

I now have a nice new workshop with 720 sq ft of workshop, well insulated with radiant floor heat and air conditioning. Read the Workshop Building Blog
