Joe Manning - Nomad

Hello again, So our canoe is two years old now and I'm just getting around to sending photos to all those who were interested enough in the project to ask for them. Sorry for the delay. We were in contact many times by phone and email during the selection process and early stages of building. Thanks for all your help. I purchased plans for your 17' Nomad in the Fall of '99. We stripped it over the winter, epoxy/glass over the Easter weekend, trim in May and finally the last coat of varnish was applied in July of '00. We entered it in the Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival held at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael's, Maryland in October '00. To our surprise we won 1st place (out of 60) in the paddling craft category and 2nd (out of about 350) in the people's choice. Joe Manning Bel Air, Maryland
