John, I thought I was looking at an Adirondack Guide Boat. I have seen a few in Wooden Boat magazine and on Wooden Boat Forum. Your craftmanship is very meticulous. I like the way your ribs join and overlap. The quality of your finish work is exquisite. What do you use?

I would enjoy rowing you guideboat but it would have to be simply so I could appreciate your craftman ship and the beauty of the design. My next boat to build is a 1927 Veltie Pruitt designed Board And Batten driftboat. I am hoping to finish my boat ASAP, I am still in hospital but should be home within the hour.
