I am ready to begin the herringbone pattern along the keel of the Tuxedo sea kayak. If this particular design works out I feel I will be producing some of the finest boats available today. My intentions have been to build the finest watercraft anyone can expect to own. I have read just about everything I can find, books, manuals, blogs, forums and websites. I have purchased plans from multiple sources and built boats from various woods, epoxies and glass. I have attempted at every step to learn how to build a beautiful work of art and functional quality water craft.
I believe anybody can build a cedar strip boat. Its just not that hard. However, building a boat with cosmetic values suited to a display case or showroom has been my goal since I completed my first boat. The detail and beauty I have been seeking requires time, patience and skill as well as knowledge of the art of boat building. The Tuxedo has the Quality of Construction I have been striving for and even if the Herringbone does not work out this time I will continue to work hard to achieve my goals. Building a boat second to none with my signature style.
