Default 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!!

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.
