Community

There is a whole community of people out in cyberspace who are into kayaks and other small boats, either building them or using them or even just admiring them. Below are some links to a few places where you can get to know some of these people.

Website Upgrade

Well, it has taken a while but I finally have the latest version of my website content management system up and running. The new system finally brings my online catalog into the main website proper which should make it easier to find what you want to find. Also, I hope I have made it easier for you to contribute pictures of the boats you have built.

Catching Up

It has been a long time since I have made any new entries on my blog. I hope my excuse is considered a good one. I've just been too busy, not only have I been helping Chesapeake Light Craft get my designs into their kit catalog, but I have been building boats, writing and buying a new house.

I am just now finishing up the boat building projects and will be delivering a microBootlegger out to Cape Cod later this week. I also just finished up a Night Heron and delivered that out to Long Island.

System Upgrade

My service provider upgraded some of the software used to run my website. As a result things some functions are broken. Please excuse the error messages that may be appearing until I get things working appropriately again.
Thanks,
Nick

I got a call from Bob Van Dyke of CVSW the other day. He said he had just been reading a book by Clive Cussler called Polar Shift. He had just picked up the book recently and was shocked to read the following:

WoodenBoat Show Concourse d'Elegance Winner

I decided to enter my Petrel into this year's Woodenboat Show Concourse d'Elegance. I am pleased to report that I ended receiving a nice 1st place mug in the professionally built manually powered boat group. There were a lot of beautiful boats there so I feel quite honored.

Press Coverage

We have received some great free publicity from a variety of magazines and newspapers. Those included below are just a partial list. See a more complete list of Guillemot Kayaks in the Press here.

 

WoodenBoat School and Curiosities of the World

I recently did a Google search on "WoodenBoat School" I noticed that my Build Your Own Night Heron course at the school came up as the second link after the actual WoodenBoat School site. Reading down the list I found a link to Matt Murphy's blog entry about the WoodenBoat School.
