In the spring of 2016, the frame to my original Triyak/Quadyak got destroyed in a shop fire. Luckily the boat wasn't in the shop. I started sourcing parts and getting ready to rebuild, but it has taken nearly 1 1/2 years for that to happen. We are now just about done with the re-build. (We being me and my Dad, who is a retired engineer)

We have made some modifications this time around. The biggest two are we built with aluminum, not steel and we incorporated a way to lift the front axle which should give me a much better angle of the paddles when in water.

I have started a youtube playlist for this craft which will detail it's original build, my two long rides (350-400 mi), other points of interest and the rebuild.

I also have a facebook page for the craft and our adventures as well:
