Cajun Pirogue, ready for fishing- small boat

I used to live on the Bayou in Louisiana and have some fond memories of paddling along with one hand while casting my fly rod.

Scratch built mostly from memory and photos. 18" OAL.

I've built a few small boats (real ones) and worked as a yacht mechanic in the Keys while living on my sailboat.

I've built a few model boats now and received a Christmas gift of the Cutter Pen Duick. That's in progress now and if I can figure out this site I'll post build photos.

Very familiar with your build, spent a lot of time with a friend in one and his craw fishing boat. Your build is exceptional from memory. You do have one flaw not enough beer ice chest to small.:cheers:Kudos very nice.
