It is an old town. There was a thread where someone was looking for a better boat for shallow water. Someone posted a craigslist add, and it had this exact boat listed as an old town. Now whoever posted that boat could be mistaken, but it is the only other one of these boats I have ever seen. Regardless, I have modified it so much, it really doesn't matter what it used to be, lol.
It used to turn on a dime. I added the skeg, so now turning is a little more work.
Anyway, maiden voyage yesterday. 6 miles solo then 4 more with a group. Didn't sink, I didn't die, and I wasn't the guy who went in the water, so I would say that was a success! The first 6 miles (just a hair over 6) I covered in 1:45. Never expected it to be that quick.
