N-7 Nutshell Wet

Post by BradF »

Finally after much stalling and procrastinating i got it wet even though i havent painting the contrasting colour on the rub rails and i spaced the oars too close together.
It aint much to look at but it rows like a dream ( even with the oars incorrectly spaced ) and it didn't even look like sinking with 2 grown men on board ( until we both got at the stern )and best of all the flotation foam works much better than i could have expected ( capsizing was no piece of cake i can tell you ).
I just wanted to thank everyone including Big J and shine and ryan and everyone who posts on this message board and most of all my wife.

Brad,
Congratulations - what a sweet little boat! It would make a great tender for boats in the TW28 range.
Well done.

Great job! It sure looks like its floatin' pretty there. Be sure to post another picture when the contrasting rubrails are painted. Enjoy your boat! :)
