I have just gotten back some pictures of my Expedition. It truned out better than I had hoped at least to me. I owe it all to a great set of plans and website. It is my best project ever, I really enjoyed building such a fine craft. Your plans were very easy and your manual and website covered everything very well. I am going to launch her again today, first day the weather has been right. The first time was great although cold. She tracks like it was on a rail, I had trouble getting it to turn, but I'm just a beginner and don't know how to lean yet. Warm water will help. I'm not afraid of drowning but 45 Degree water is no fun. Thanks for all the great tips and instructions. I love your website, I still visit it every day, can't get enough. Here are a few pictures not much action but a lot of fun, I love my Expedition I want to thank you for your skill at drawing plans and a great website.

My friend Lydia Fonvielle, who I think is the current world champion surf kayaker loves my kayak and will be paddling it soon. She has given me a few pointers and will be able to give me a few lessons. Thanks again.
