Dean Smoll - Nomad

Enclosed is a picture of the boat I completed from your book and "Nomad" plans. I purchased the book in '87 and finished the boat last year. (The boat only took 5 months to build, the dreaming about it took 16 years...) My family and I took it to the Boundary Waters this summer where it performed better than my expectations. It is a great, stable, and quick boat that took a huge load and drew lots of compliments. Thank you for providing the top quality book and plans. Dean Smoll
