Launched my new diy-ply-sectionable-nesting-outrigger-standup-punt on the lake yesterday. See pix.

It goze ok -- but it did tend to go left and then further left, or right and then further right. Left mainly -- koz i gave the outrigger about 2" of toe-in -- and the banana bend in the black poly pipe leans in heaps -- and the hull itself haz a slight banana to the left. This sort of set-up iz an old islander trick -- but it looks like hav overdunn it.

So i hav now eezed the toe-in to only 1" instead of 2" -- and i changed the banana-lean-in to near zero, ie near vertical. So, next time i shood be able to paddle allmost exclusively on the righthandside, ie on the outrigger side -- instead of 3 on the right and 1 on the left etc.

I hav got a pole to pole along -- but poling iznt much good for a shortish punt, especially with an outrigger in the way. And the paddle works great -- it iz a diy-ply-standup-paddle.

Now i havta think of a name.
Costa me Nothing.
Captains and children first.
Rock me.

Seems to me that its some sort of flotation device.

ie, its some kind of boat.
