Don Barnes - Ranger

Posted on March 23 2012

When I launched my Ranger last spring, I had the best of intentions to let you know how it turned out, and say thanks. I didn't get around to it, but with the addition of a scanner to our household this Christmas, I have become re-motivated. With all due modesty, the boat turned out beautifully, and paddles effortlessly. I love it. The compliments I have received from friends have given my ego an unnecessary boost. Your course, followed by the construction from your plans, made the job quite easy. (Not quick, but not that technically difficult.)I used the no-staple method, and though it takes a bit more time, gives a much more pleasant final product. I had many pleasant hours both during and after construction. Without exageration, it is probably one of the most satisfying endeavors of my life. Don Barnes
