After sitting on the fence for quite some time, I finally ordered my kit. Unpacked it today and cut out all the parts. As a first time builder I am looking forward to the build. I have time to work on the project so I hope to progress at a good pace and look forward to using this space to keep me on track. I am going to use this as a micro skiff, poling flats and coastal creeks. and would really love to hear advice from someone using theirs in this manner.

Nice. I'm there every few weeks for work. Graves has the best burger I've ever had! :wink:

They have made them the same since I was a kid. Graves was originally our Drive In Movie on the same site.

Good work in making a start! I have been itching to build a boat since high school, I always found excuses not to.
Wish I had done it sooner, I'm finding the whole process very enjoyable.
As the old saying goes- you can't finish without a start.

If anyone can help me out with this: for some reason these photos will not post properly. When I take a photo with my phone (iphone) and send it to my email, i can download to my computer and upload with no issues. Fotofinish sent me these 4 photos but they will not upload the same way. They are much smaller files than the ones from my phone so size shouldn't be an issue. They are also both Jpeg file type.

Sometimes I get the same..
Android or Windows, don't know either why it happens.

fotofinish, Welcome to the forum.

Try uploading them to the Gallery first, then transferring them to your thread.
