Just wanted to share the Build thread of my Carbon/ Kevlar Pearl Build !
Instead spending the time to type, I will share a link to the Build over at Canoe Tripping. net.




The canoe weighed in at just under 36# I have to varnish the hull and Watco the gunnels.
I'm happy with the weight of this 16' solo.

Thanks !

I have to give Jim Moran credit. His Book Building Your Kevlar Canoe, inspired me !

Just finish putting the finishing touches on Black Pearl.
She weighs in at 36 1/2 #, with Spar Urethane on the hull, and Watco on the trim.
I'm happy with that.
Hope to have her in the BWCA this Fall.
here's a few pics



Thanks for following along !

Thanks Kent !

It has it's share of flaws, but all cosmetic.
I'm anxious to see how it handles compared to the stripper it came off of !
