Newt Builds

Joseph Daoust

Maple Ridge, British Columbia

Following your basic plan for NEWT, I came up with the neat little craft in the pictures. As you can see, I made a few changes, some cosmetic—-black walnut deck accents and stems—-others, practical : floatation- storage chambers at bow and stern; carved lifting handle / arm-rests ——really comfortable for bird-watching; a hinged seat to facilitate cleaning. This is the second time I have it (her?) out and find it a delightful craft for pottering on calm waters. I am very pleased with the boat .
