Soo many of us are cheap and build our own stuff, I'll use this thread to document some of the things I have done. Feel free to ask questions along the way.

Painting has begun. Would have done a base of green but I had tan so we'll just dress it up with accents later.

Water Test went well. This is extremely easy to paddle and very much so shaped like a coffin as I was told...

As you'll see the width of the box is too narrow to lay in well. Which is ok as I had not planned on laying flat in this build.

U can armor that foam with a thick layer of restle coat. Wood glue + sawdust + woodglue + sawdust end with woodglue than paint.

Glass complete. Single layer of 6 ounce top and bottom. Double layer where the sides meet the water. Time for a water trial and then paint!

Flipped it over and glued on a runner or guide or whatever one would like to call it so I can hopefully paddle somewhat straight.

By popular demand I added some additional depth to the sneak to ensure I don't fill it with water.
