Very pretty - you did a nice job ! By having the lumber company precut the pieces you needed, you learned a new way to build a "kit" boat. The bottom line is that people make a decision about being a "paddler" or a "builder."

Project got delayed due to other urgent issues. But I am almost done. 98%. Just need to do the final sanding and put on a final coat of varnish. I cheated a little bit by buying precut lumbers from JO Lumber in Texas. Since I am not very good with a table saw, they cut all the lumbers to spec and fedex to my home. It saved my fingers and time. Last boat building project, I think I spent 20 hours driving around town searching for the right lumbers and milling.
Boat looks amazing and rides very well. It weights 23 lb. I
rode the canoe at one night with a couple lanterns. Canoe lighted up like a lamp shade in the middle of the lake. Very pretty.
Thanks for all the encouragements and advices.
