I'll scan a few photo's tonight. It's an 18' Lew Miller design that was featured in Canoe magazine. I had zero experience building boats but was young and enthusiastic. The project took all summer and the pic you see was its maiden voyage on Maine's Moose River.

The major mistake I made (not knowing any better) was using vinyl-ester resin. It went on ripply was absolute hell to sand smooth. That may be a blessing now because I'm sure the old stuff will come off with no more than a putty knife. Re skinning is Project 356-B in the lineup, right after painting the house this summer...
