Wow... those two pictures are the same boat? That's amazing. Is any of the wood in the second picture original to the first, or did you replace every stick?
Ninigret is cool... but then, I like
all the Atkin designs.
I'm definitely enjoying the build. I'd rather not be under time pressure, but in some ways, it's convenient.. . Its too easy to let these projects drag out. Better to finish them and then start anouther, I think!
