Boat paddles are great, and Jerry is extremely skilled. I love high gloss, also. Will that have Pegheds? Helps keep headstock weight down on the Boat Paddles. I got to play several this past early summer, and Jerry makes a superb instrument. Thx for sharing.

I want a custom 'ukulele some day. Boat Paddle 'Ukulele Co. is only a few hours drive away. Much like the locavore movement, I think having an instrument built locally would give me more involvement in the process.

Darn it! I had my UAS symptoms under control until this. Someday. Soon I hope...

Just spoke to Jerry about it this morning concerning the headstock weight and he highly recommended that we go ahead with the Pegheads. I agreed with his recommendation.

Dennis, it is looking fantastic. I know I love my plain jane Kayak but yours is the best I have ever seen. I am eager to hear it when you get it. Looking forward to the sound bite.

We plan on meeting up. I joked with him earlier that his inheritance is going to be in the form of custom ukulele's :) Hope to meet you some day as well. I'm down in the SD area once or twice a year and I usually try to hit one of the uke meet ups down there.

What do you mean "plan" on meeting up? If we are at the same location and we don't meet up that is just pathetic. :)
