I just finished building a Laughing Loon "Georgian Bay" stripper, now my wife, having seen the final product, wants me to build one for her. I am afraid that model may not "fit" her. I am thinking the 24" width of the "G.B" may be too wide for her 5'1" frame. Am I correct? What design features should I consider when choosing a model. She will be a novice. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advice.
