Not to be obsessive, but...

I just can't get this thing out of my thoughts:

This is the CLC Shearwater Hybrid. The 'Hybrid' doesn't come from some trendy new combination of batteries and golf cart motors, it actually refers to the multi-colored cedar strips that give the builder the opportunity to artistically customize their boat. They give the appearance of being a strip-built boat while retaining the building ease of the stitch & glue boat.

Oh, I may not have mentioned that I live just a few miles from the public access canoe/kayak launch point on the Big Darby. Hmmmm...


  1. It's a pretty thing, isn't it? But I still prefer the sailboat.

  2. I stumbled on your blog the other day, and now I'm interested in building one of those things! I'd go for a kayak or the rowing shell, and between those, the decision comes down to why you want to be on the water: exercise and speed, or adventure. They're all beautiful.
