Hi Paul, it's been quite some time since I've spoken to you about building the Maxi boat but I finally got the boat done a few months ago. The plans were excellent and easy to follow. As promised here's the finished product. It took a little longer to build than I had expected (due to unforeseen mountain bicycle accident) but it sure was fun and very relaxing. The first day I launched it I caught fish and decided I need a little longer oars as you can probably tell from the photo. Now that I've had it in the water I may make a few modifications to the transom for addition of a little motor.
