Thoughts from a Huntington Harbor Kayak Builder

THis builder recently sent me this very nice email and pictures:

Hi Jeff,

Just wanted to say what great fun I had building the Huntington Kayak. I made a few changes as I moved along with the build, I put a small transom on the back so I could install a small electric trolling motor. As for the deck I build a cockpit and decked her with 1/4 x 3/4 Cedar that I cut from stock wood. It gives it that personal touch. I will certainly be building a boat again. I learned the meaning off patience and not to rush to the finish, but to "just enjoy the journey".
