"Wow, that's a ton of rocker!!!  ~10" bow and stern?I didn't used to like the idea of woven over biax...but after doing some repairs, found that biax wants to "peel" along the strands, and some plain weave or woven…"

"Great advice Shawn. Thank you for the information and drawing. The smaller dories sound like they are becoming quite popular to put together. They are certainly fun to build! Hope to meet you some time and see your creations."

"Levi @ Raindog is working on a 10.5' front passenger layout, Brad is working on a 10.5' rear passenger layout...you'll have similar space constraints for 11.3' double-ender, but it will be an exciting ride for two!! I rowed one…"

"I am contemplating a front passenger spot after Andy H asked me the same question. There seems to be enough passenger room up front to clear the oars. I love the look of your boat and the layout you put together. Did you install a water pump system…"

"I had a Tatman 17.5, 54 inch bottom that I would row across Skilak lake into the Kenai river in Alaska and that rowed really well. I would guess 5mph. That boat was not as wide at the bow or stern though.The Briggs pushes a lot more water and is…"

"Using a GPS I could hold 4 mph for a minute or 2 and was able to briefly hit 5 mph for a momentary sprint.  Long distance would be much slower of course.  If I'm drag racing a raft I will implode before I would let them win !"
