This is the first post in three years. I stopped working on this kayak when Dad got sick. I had no time with Dad in hospice and after he passed away I had no wind in my sails. I spent the next two years working at a new job as plant manager at a wheelchair company. This job left me too tired and depressed to work on my time off so the Petrel build just sat for three years. I quit that job last March I now I am back to being myself again.
