Aces Mike.
Did you build to a particular plan or by eye?
How are you liking the Greenland Paddle ?
Paipo surfer in repose,
Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?

Mike,

What will you be using this beauty to do? If I had only 10% of your talent.

Mike,

How many hours of work do you estimate it took to build the boat?

If you make your wife one, it will be an excuse to spend hours in the shed making other stuff as well.

Wow, that's amazing. The more I look at the photo the more details I see. Just beautiful.

Did you seal it with glass? Just the outside, or inside too?
