    82 pages, 114 illustrations

    82 pages, 114 illustrations, 4+ months of work. The assembly manual is written and it is burned to a CD!

    I had to do a little research but it turned out to be simple to make the CD autorun and to create a start menu linking to all the 'stuff' on the CD. I have it set up so everything is HTML since virtually every computer out there has a Browser of some sort.

    Here is a screen shot of of menu. Pretty happy with it.

    Now I just have to finish setting up the online store, order shipping supplies and restock. I am out of wood!

    Praise God! This is has been a L O N G road!

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Congrats on the milestone, Jeff. Having written my fair share of manuals, I know the effort that goes into them.

    Congratulations. Putting the manual together may have been a more difficult project than actually building a kayak.

    I have no doubt about that Frank!

    Congrats Jeff, a long journey for sure, but worth it too
