      Takin' Shape?!?

      That is a gorgeous boat. I like his choice of seating material. I also like his chine guard and keel guard. Has she been proven river worthy yet?

        Very nice, I love the curved stem. One of the advantages of stitch and glue. Is that a Kingfisher?

          We took it down the Etowah yesterday on its first voyage!!!(16 miles)
          It handled great. The chine and keel guard and bottom is Linex and is supposed to be bulletproof.We rubbed some rocks on bottom a few times and was not a
          scratch at all on the bottom..Thanks for looking!!

              If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

                It's pretty neat floating in something that you saw come to life. A buddy sent me the insta pictures. I've been wanting to pass shoot out of mine too! I really regret the white paint for that haha.

                    Ah gotcha yeah he's got a distinctive style. He was kind enough to send me the plans for his rope seats that I still haven't built.
