I'm in Carmichael with a SH14 in slow progress in a garage in downtown Sac. It's been kind of an on and off build but I intend to get back on it soon. I got a motorcycle recently (first one in 20 yrs.) and wouldn't mind the ride over your way.

I'm in Fairfield, I plan to build the cheap canoe first (my first boat building project). This way I'll learn the steps and process for building more complicated projects. I don't want to try to big of a project right out of the box! Then I'll build the DS-15. However, it won't be ready for this duck season!!! I also would like to meet and talk with northern California builders.

Don't forget that the cheap canoe is based on a pirogue which is a hunting canoe. I'm using mine this year for hunting the local sloughs in the delta. I'm going to be making a burlap cover for it soon. I even had my local line x guy shoot a thin layer on the inside for a tough finish that can handle deeks, gun barrels or anything else I throw at it.

Correct, and I will probably will. My first thoughts are to have the grand kids use the boat up at Blue lake, in Lake County each summer. I look forward to building.
