This is Bill Samson and Sean Gallagher.
If you were at the Paddle 08 Perth show in October, you'll have seen the skin on frame boat Sean started making but was unable to complete before returning to the USA.
Bill has just told me that, three months on, she's ready to launch. "Unlike most skin-on-frame boats", writes Bill, "this kayak has lots of volume and should be great for touring., I'm hoping to try it out in the water today". (Photos here).
Sean runs kayak building courses in the US and you can listen to his Podcast here. Bill's podcast is here and a video of one of his kayaks is below.
