Three years later: The launching of my Dad's kayak.
August 2003: Well, the long awaited moment has arrived and my Dad has finished his Chesapeake16 LT. He built it in our garage which was a tight fit but worked out pretty well. He decided to install a rub rail which looked pretty nice but definitely added a number of steps. Below, my Mom helps him install one of the rub rails. I helped out with the sanding which definitely brought back memories -- it's hard to believe it's been three years since I built mine.
Before we get to the launching, a few pictures of the finished boat:
