A finished Chester Yawl
This is the Chester Yawl being stitched together.
Just after I put into the water I spotted a Great Blue Heron. He stood on the far bank as I paddled by. The big excitement of the run was the old, failed dam in Canaan (I believe it is called the Hefter Dam). I’d been through this before in a kayak, but never in my skin-on-frame boat. Today there was a two foot tall standing wave that tossed the bow pretty high. I got through upright, but took on 3 inches of water, so I pulled over to the bank to empty out.
