Summer and fall are behind us now and winter is coming. We're mostly ready here. EB White wrote "Just to live in New England in the winter is a full time job" and I'm hoping this winter shows us her best. I'll spend the next 3 months in the shop: building for clients, teaching and working on personal projects. Of course anytime the snow is just right and the cold has settled in, I'll steal away to the mountains or coast for a few days of camping and exploring.
You might have noticed that kit orders are on hold. I'm pretty sure this is temporary. I need to sort out pricing, shipping and some supply issues and right now I just don't have the time. (One man shop - don't ya know.)
These boats do matter a great deal. Case in point, this summer I built my 100th Willow Kayak at The Chewonki Foundation in mid coast Maine so I'll be working hard to get the kits out the door again.
Lets keep in touch and Bon Haver.
