I wanted to share with you a couple photographs of my Night Heron kayak (LOA 18′, beam of 20″), designed by Nick Shade of Guillemot Kayaks . The boat took nearly two years of weekends and evenings to complete, with work proceeding at a glacial pace during some periods. The boat was first launched on a cold, windy day in February, 2012 on Jordan Lake, located in central NC. It performed wonderfully despite the weather conditions and my kayaking skills being a bit rusty.
