Successful christening and launch of the Peace Canoe!

Gorgeous October day here outside DC, a perfect day to be on the water. Gulls and an osprey wheeling about, gusty nor’wester keeping things clear and cool, the pleasant surroundings of Mason Neck State Park (map) – just the environment to christen and launch the Peace Canoe. So christen it we did (the kids helped), using the very nastiest champaign I could inadvertently pick up. She is now PEACE OF THE PUZZLE. Enjoy some pictures of her first outing (we were lucky enough to come upon some friendly kayakers, one of whom took our picture and was kind enough to send it).

Thank you to all who have read about PEACE OF THE PUZZLE’s birth and provided encouragement along the way. It was a blast and I look forward to some great family adventures ahead!

Is the boat really stable in water? I`m also planing on a build sometime soon. I`m looking into building materials now. Enjoyed the reading on your project.
