    Ended up with four seats, room for six passengers and a ton of gear! Hope to post more pictures soon. She made a maiden voyage of about 100 miles down the lower miss, just prior to the record flooding we are currently experiencing!

    Here is a review from my friend John Ruskey, of Quapaw Canoe Co. who commissioned me to build this canoe:



    Hey Bubba!

    For your morning enjoyment -- a photo of the "Cricket" canoe -- loaded as we're leaving a rainy camp from Is. 67. She takes off like a rocket! She's a limber one on the water, a little hard headed in turning though. Incredible stowage space. Whew! And solid! Wow, she's solid & very strong feeling throughout. Sturdy seats, very comfortable. I placed my 3 clients up front on the 1st and 2nd seat and then used the rest of the canoe for gear, which worked well. Love the details work in the decks, the raised deck is a beautiful effect.

    Will write again later & send more photos. You done good!
