Edit that URL so the word "canoe" is not part of it.

Lovely work. A strap instead of a thwart, is that what I'm seeing?

The strap is for carrying it is removable but can double as a backrest, I found the boat a bit frisky for me so I designed an outrigger that works fine , it has a similiar construction as the boat with a flat bottom and creates a little bit of drag, the stability improved out of sight. I have now also almost completed another design of a V hull outrigger (2 off) and will try them out soon .

P.S. How can I add photos easily, I somehow got the first one up there, dont know how. Thanks.

Bigfoot, looks like you used the attachments feature. Essentially you just drag and drop into the post, then scroll down, and there will be an option to "place inline" that shows up next to the name of the picture under the attachments tab.

Floats? Looks like its levitating!!

Looks beautiful.

And thanks for the strap backrest idea.
You only need patience if you'd rather be doing something else.

These are the latest outriggers, yet to be put on the water, I think they will do the job.
