I have built and had this...

I have built and had this kayak in all kinds of waters. It is a great handler and very sea worthy. I have had this is the bays around Rockport Texas and many rivers leading to the Gulf of Mexico. It took me five months to build doing some work everyday for that time, never missed a day so that I would stay on track. Really a nice finished wooden kayak
