It looks perfect and I am sure it will row well.

Beautiful build! I've always like the look of that design. Sure hope you get pics of launch day.

What does it weigh.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

I'm not sure what the boat weighs. It feels about as heavy as a standard aluminum canoe. It feels pretty light, but still sturdy. I think the plans said it would come in between 65 and 85 pounds. Mine is probably on the top end of that because I used ash for seats, rubrails, deckplates, etc., to make it look pretty.

I would say it's too awkward to cartop. I'm going to try to find a trailer.

Nick
