Actually, I'm holding off building the whitewater boat because I don't want to do your design the injustice of having to cut corners to fit current budget constraints, or to do a poor job due to inexperience in building w/ strips.

I also want it to be a pretty boat. I was thinking of stretching it to about 13 ft. by immitating the top view of an existing whitewater design that I like the looks of, and scaling the sections to fit. Does that sound doable / reasonable?
