Dear Paul....I hope you like this picture as much as I liked building the boat. It has already yielded me access to many good spots and many trout. I am still making modifications including knee locks for standing. I'm happy with the seats including the side consoles, which were a shot in the dark but they work well. I get a lot of positive comments and inquiries about the boat. There aren't that many home-built boats in the Atlanta area and people don't know what they're missing.

Thanks again for all your help during the entire process. The project was fun, easy and hopefully just the beginning. By the way, while researching in my local library I found "Plywood Projects" by none other than Paul Butler. The rowing dory is similar to the Maxi-Mac, and I am happy to have bypassed the frame and ladder method and built a stitch and glue boat.
