After a quiet summer away from my shop, I finally got my newly built Frej in the water this week. It's 18' LOA; I built a 16' version a few years ago and really like it. I was trying for a bit longer boat - not to be faster, which it isn't with my 'motor'- but to gain a bit more stowage space. Strip built with glass/epoxy. 6oz glass cloth Weight in the 50s (lbs) Carbon seat and cockpit coaming. RegLake-style skeel. SeaLect Oval Performance hatches. Nigel Foster -style spare paddle bag on aft deck.
