    Tomorrow my wife and I are taking the 22-foot tandem sea kayak out on the big lake (Michigan).  We and friends are paddling between Empire, MI to Glen Haven, MI along the high bluffs of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

    My current project is a 17 foot solo sea kayak.  I like hard chines (hull angles) on a kayak so the hull is marine plywood, but the deck will be cedar strips.

    Here is a view of the hull from this weekend.  Two layers of fiberglass with epoxy.  Now to skim coat epoxy and smooth out and I'll be ready to build the deck.
