    Kayak Launched * still no name!

    Still have no official name for this boat but it is officially started. I have been tossing around dozens of names and nothing has stuck yet. Heck nothing is even on the short list!

    I did have a good suggestion though. A friend suggested using local river/creeks/streams/mud puddle names. That has a local tie which I like. but still nothing .....

    But I did start on the framing today. Time consuming cutting all these ribs. I think I am going to have to find me a CNC machine to cut these out. But here is where it stand.

    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    It may not be to original as names go but considering how light they are go with names of water fowl??

    I can see where a cnc would cut a lot of time in the beginning.

    Looking good though!!
    Aloha,

    That was exactly what I started out thinking. But it is done to death. Lots of boats named that way so I have decided against that.

    Dan considering your sig line is:

    Humble opinions, suggestions, hints, tips and pointers are all welcome. smart remarks will be graded on originality and creativity, then billed accordingly.


    I will be sending you a bill and after that I think you owe me big!

    You've got the Wren already. How about other bird names? (Doesn't have to be waterfowl.)

    Jeff,

    Just a thought: are you keeping records or logs of the build? Since you're doing it for profit now, at some point you may want to do an an analysis, what we call in my field 'effort reporting'. It can be real simple, like, just every fifteen minutes make a quick note in a notebook on what you're doing. It seems silly, but sometimes its durned helpful, and often the results are pretty surprising!

    Thanks,

    Bill
