Wood Duck Double Hybrid on the Llangollen Canal

After all my tribulations with the twisted-bow problem during construction (see the Boat Building Help section, https://forum.fyneboatkits.co.uk/viewtopic.php?id=687, I finally launched on December 8th 2020 in the Llangollen Canal between St Martins where I live and Chirk, right on the Welsh border.

My wife and I had a good hour's worth of paddling, and found my choice of seating and footrest positioning to be spot-on.

All the photos show her, not me, but the main subject is my 14 ft Wood Duck. I had a lot of fun building her and look forward to lots more fun paddling.

Congratulations, glad to see you got it all straight.  No lingering effects noticeable in the water?

Love the scheme, looks great!
