We Built A Kayak

During the summer of 2010 I built a kayak from scratch. The kayak is a guide boat for me to use as I guide for my Father, Doug McConnell, who competes in open water swim races. Along with my brothers and sister, we follow him on lakes and in oceans around the United States as he competes in open water races. This is part of his preparation for his ultimate goal ... to swim the Enlish Channel. Made of mahogany, and with the help of my family, I followed a blueprint. Photographs were taken every step of the way. Come on out for the next race or practice and I'll let you take it for a spin.
