I finished her a few weeks ago but had to wait until this past weekend to splash her. My nephew tagged along. She is very smooth and fast but also a bit wobbly side to side but that’s the nature of a canoe. I’m very happy with her.
The more you paddle her the more you will stop noticing the wobble. Most of it is you are new to paddling the boat. As you learn that she is very stable the wobble goes away. Canoes are known for their strong secondary stability. She is a pretty boat.

Need artwork on her.

Thanks OQ!
Yessss! There seems to almost be a psychology of letting go of the concern of tipping over and instead just paddling and letting the body correct automatically.
I will soon be testing her out again over a 3 day period fishing for trout on a huge crystal clear lake. I’ll post pics

What type of artwork?

Scroll down for the symbols on canoes and there meaning.

Those outriggers are slick! Look like they are quick to install and remove. Does not take much to really stabilize things. Mine were set up so they only touched the water when the boat leaned.
