"I just finished building the Hawk..thank you for providing a way that I could afford to have a top of the line boat and paddle. The building process was fun and very rewarding, and the payoff was better than expected. I am truly addicted and having a wonderful time on the water." Matthew F.
"Your manual is so well done, my appreciation for your knowledge and attention to every detail just grows. Your workmanship and craftsmanship have given me much joy." Bud S.
