Thanks Rich! It will be finished this weekend. All I have left to do is glass the bottom tonight, then paint and add hardware this weekend. I'll let everything cure all next week and then take her out on Saturday with my dog to get her used to going in and out of the boat.
I decided against putting pods on the boat for now. It just doesn't seem needed with this design. I am considering adding oar locks that I am going to salvage from a cheap rubber raft I have sitting in my garage.
The boat is 9 ft long with 7 ft in the front and 2 ft in the back. The cockpit cutout is just shy of 5 ft long and fits me perfectly. My buddies boat is a little longer than mine to account for him being a few inches taller. I'll get a final weight once they are painted and the hardware is attached.
