Wow... I posted a couple of weeks ago about starting my first kayak. The response was fantastic... THANKS !! I have purchased Nick's book and am half way through after a couple of hours reading. I have purchased my graph paper today and am going to get going on graphing the forms! Still deciding on wood to use. . .

It is funny, when I told my girlfriend and dad aobut this new project, they said "WOW, when is it going to be done, a couple of years ?" I sensed some skepticism . . . and imagine that once it gets started, they will both jump in and want to help !!

Thanks again for the beginning of the advice that I will be seeking from this fantastic site. Oh yeah, I have decided to build the Guillemot !

Asking for advice soon...
