Re: PocketShip Kit Build

Our customer is building in an unheated barn that he has borrowed.  This is certainly a large project and his first boat building one.

If you have any questions please ask them and I shall pass them on for an answer.

I aspire to one of these but worried about the building but it seems to be a canoe on a larger scale I hope the pictrures will continue.

The hull is complete and painted, but the boat isn't rigged yet.  The builder couldn't wait to launch it, so he tried it with a motor.  Hopefully it will be sailing soon.
