Another Eureka Canoe Launched

Another Eureka has been launched – this one by Peter McKenzie. He is quite happy about the way the boat goes both light and loaded. Also there are some nice pictures of the boat in action – I suspect that most people get a bit carried away at just how nice the boat looks so they fire off all the film before the boat is put in the water.

That would be nice logic if the pictures weren’t digital!

This is an excerpt from Peter’s email (there is a link below to the whole email and the pics –
