Not enough hours in the day

Since I’m not finding as much time as I had hopped to fill out this blog, I thought I’d throw up some pictures of the final result and add the process later.

Rigging the kayakamaran

While the kayakamaran was successfully launched near the end of the summer of 2013, I consider it to be an ongoing project. The two primary upcoming improvements I have planned are a daggerboard (or possibly paired boards though from what I have read, one should be sufficient) and a better rudder system.

While the paddle locked to an oarlock can be cumbersome at times,  the system does reduce weight and complexity since I would want to have at least one paddle on board at all times regardless; wind is reliably unreliable in the valley lakes of New England.
