I road tested the Kayak mounted on the home made roof rack on a 100 mile road trip yesterday at speeds up to 70 and on curvy bumpy roads and it worked great. Gordon, if your around thanks for the ideas.

It has been 10 months building this boat and it seems a little sad that it is about over. I have made a lot of mistakes and learned alot at the same time and I want to thank all of you that have guided me through this building process. I think I will become a lurker and if I am successful wiping a coaming lip next winter and perhaps building a sailing rig and pontoons I will post pictures.

Take care,
