Been gone for some time. The MI 12 was splashed but my oars were certainly too long at 9 feet 3 inches. I need to build a set at 7.5 feet oars and go out again. The boat came in at 110 pounds including oarlocks. I ended up mainly using 12 oz. biax tape and cloth so I believe that this is the reason for the higher weight than designated in the plans. She moves along easily in the water and is very stable.

On another note, I just returned from Colorado and Utah rivers in the solo dory and had a great time beating up the little boat a bit.
