Just recently, I along with a friend of mine, made this 8' kayak for his scouts, who were researching what it would take to make at todays' prices . This particular one, we had studied various plans, stories and not so good videos' on how to make one. Trial and error aside, as you can see, I was brave enough to try it in a private pond. Other things to consider, are registration and inspections in different states. Be aware of boating laws and what to expect. As you can see, she floats! ...and the only water taken in on the boat was from splash on from other kayaks or kids( yes they will play). My take on this boat, for such a short length, you may want to add scaggs to the bottom for more of a directional purpose. Quite frankly she turns quick and you may have issues during windy days. I've already started my build on my kayak and have made some adjustments in the cockpit area as I felt the blue one, was set back to far. So the green one I moved forward about 2 inches.Another thing to consider, should you want to paint it a particular color, don't be too choosy on the paint match. My OCD is having a hard time with this one as i picked a darker color than the one that was given me. Hopefully if I remember, I'll add more to this post as I just glued the 2 parts together with canvas. This is definitely a fun project to do! To be continued...EricL
