Now I am getting antsy. Its not even been a week and I am ready to build one for myself.You have been doing a beautiful job so far. I was looking at Gordon Boatworks web site yesterday. They make the "canoe style skiff" and waterman boats. Check their site out. They have some neat interior ideas. I really like the rear dry storage boxes that leave an open bildge that is easy access to pumps etc. Also easy tiller steering area. Also have a storage box in center of hull that can be located to help the center of gravity. Of all the hulls I have built I am more excited about this one for my future needs. May have to take a ride south to check yours out. Great job so far.
