Max Buckland couldn't be happier with his 9′ Kidyak, MAXINE, built for him by his grandfather Alan Deforest of Wilimington, North Carolina, and presented to Max on Christmas Day, 2011. MAXINE is a stitch-and-glue mahogany design created by Glen-L, designed with sealed floatation chambers fore-and-aft. Alan made the Adirondack-style seat, coaming, and chocks from mahogany also. He sheathed the entire hull in fiberglass and epoxy.
TUBBY TUG (9' LOA) was launched in August 2001 on the St. John River in Belleisle Bay, New Brunswick. Glen-L Boats of Bellflower, CA designed her, and Tom Wetzel of Grand Manan built her using the stitch-and-glue method. TUBBY TUG is owned by 5-year-old Dylan MacKenzie of Hampton, New Brunswick.
