    Well, of course, I knew that! :wink: :lol:

    Just holding back so the others could have some fun! (Not!)

    How many strings? What kind of tone? Like a ukelele?

    A Kabosy is a Malagasy "guitar", originally 4 strings, tuned to an open chord and with a weird fret pattern (unequal spacing, not all full width - like on the drawing). A more modern version, sometimes with 6 strings and more normal frets is sometimes called a Mandalina. Nylon or wire strings.

    Check this out (how do you post actual pictures here?)

    Ok, my boat is "paddleable" 8) Now if I can just get it out of my basement... :?

    If I end up going for a paddle this afternoon I will post some pics tonight. It still needs the LPU and a few other little things, but it should float.
