Adirondack Guideboat Finished

A long time has passed by again since my last post, but I have been busy working on completing this boat. My initial plan was to build a "quick and dirty" hull to see how this hull design was. That plan was last November 2009. As the build progressed and more hours were put in, the boat became more than just a fast build. Eleven months later, she is ready to row. I figure it was about 5-6 months of build time because I did not do anything during the winter months. My garage is just too cold in wintertime.

I built her to match as close as I could to Steve Kaulback's kevlar design. She has not been in the water yet so I don't have any water shots. Next week I will. I am also going to put together all of my building photos in Flickr. I can't wait to see how she rows!

Dave...I can see that you got carried away "finishwise" like everyone down here in Texas does. I'm gonna try to stay quickandirty so I can go rowing sooner. Did you get to try here? (The weather here is finally nice.) Beautiful job, mate, let me know how she goes!
