At Last – the Launch

July 22, 2010

I got a bit behind on the blog so most of the final steps were completed in June and the launch took place on 4th of July at Eaton Brook Reservoir.  It was good to know that she floats, doesn’t leak and paddles like a dream.  My gratitude to Dave, who helped me through this process and made me believe I could really build this kayak.  Also to Sarah – who of course – read the directions:)
