of my #1 Sweet Pea. That's my grandson, Hikaru in it at the Berkeley
Aquatic Park - yesterday, first day in the water. He has a standard
floatation cushion under him - setting a bit too high, I think.
We used a cushion only as a back rest when the adults tried it
I included a rub rail 3/8" x 3/4" half round of oak;
a keelson of the same material. One coat of ZipGuard showed no
pin holes - I was surprised but added the second coat anyway.
the oak additions the boat only weighs eight pounds - another
surprise. I have a second boat about ready to accept the thwart.
We'll have a pair of them shortly!
