Just before we sold everything and took off on ECHO, I finished up a kayak building project that I had been working on and off for about 3 years.
The design is based on Greenland style boats and is called a Night Heron. Building the kayak was a great experience that allowed lots of flexibility to make a model that was one of a kind.
When complete we moved the boat to its new home with our oldest son Brian. First open water launch was at Larrabee State Park just south of Bellingham Washington. Brian reports it paddles well.
