More pics.
I took Nokomis out in the backyard today for a photo shoot.
gunnels are still a little tacky, but she will see water this weekend.

Was finally able to get Nokomis on the water. Paddling with the Pelicans, which are very unusual around here, made it special !

I'm really impressed with her stability ! Can't wait to really put her through her paces !

Here's a few pics.

Nice job Jim, I really prefer my solo boat.

What is the length on the boat? Do you use a double or single blade?

Nokomis is 16'4".

Single blade. I don't like double blades. I can finesse the canoe better with a single blade, plus I stay drier. Have you ever seen a free style paddler use a double blade ?

Thanks !
