Clayton Plunkett - Prospector Ranger

Hello from Clayton Plunkett. I was given a set of plans from my sister about a year ago as a gift. I then built my first strip canoe it is a 15 foot Ranger. This canoe is just wonderful to paddle. It has been a year now and I have built 2 more kayaks . One is a Guillemot and the other is a Parr. The Guillemot is by Nick Shade and the Parr is by Joe Greenly. both are also great boats. This love for strip building was started by the book Canoecraft and you Ted Mores. I want to thank you the time I now spend with my daughter Paddling is priceless to me. So here are some pictures. Thanks again and have a great day from your friend in the deep south Clayton and his daughter Hannah. I almost forgot I am building another Ranger this one will be given to Hannah's school Hill Crest Christian School. It will be used in a fund raiser. I called to arange to pay the royalty and the very kind person waved that fee to aid in the fund raising. Thank you so very much I will send pictures when it is finished and God bless.
