John Messinger RIP

Submitted byadmin onMon, 10/15/2018 - 17:36

Some of you may remember John Messinger he was a prolific poster on the KayakForum.

Sadly he passed away during a kayak race yesterday. Another friend of mine was in the race reported that "He capsized with a mile to go and was face down in the water when we got to him less than a minute later.  Despite efforts of competitors, safety boat, EMT personnel, Life Star, etc. he was pronounced dead at Hartford Hospital. "

very cool to find this new  forum, thank you nick, we all appreciate your help over the years.

this is a boat project i drew for a boat builder here in the north west.

i started with a table of off sets, you can see these measurements in the album link.

this boat is made out of aluminum as you can see but it could be made out of wood.

Home Page Slideshow Photos Wanted

You may have noticed that the home page has a little slide show running. I just quickly found a few images to put in to start with.

I could use some more. I'm looking for images of people working on building boats as well as photos of completed boats and boats being used.

The images need to be at least 950 x 355 pixels. I can't guarantee I will use everything, but think of it as a chance to share some nice images here on the forum.
