updates for the quietwater paddle book

I'm not too happy that you are reading this page. It most likely means that you found a mistake in my writing, pictures, or elsewhere. So...sorry about that and I hope you never have to come to this page again :)

Anyway, what you see below is an entry that hopefully corrects issues found after I uploaded the first version of this ebook to the website where you purchased and downloaded it.

The second edition of the paddle making book is slated for release at Canoecopia 2019, March 9-11 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI. I'll be up in the Atrium, Saturday (3/10) giving a talk on the pure pleasures of paddle making. Stop by and let me know what you like in a paddle project.

The first edition of the book is somewhat of a hot mess. Second edition is on the way. If you would like a free copy of the new book, call quietwater and I will send you a copy of the second edition gratis.

The issue that concerns me most is that the captions for the images may on occasion be separate from the image it should accompany. Depending on which Kindle device you are reading this book with and the font size you are using, you may or may not find this to be an issue. I hope you do not and I apologize for this in advance if you do! I have tried my best to minimize these types of issues, but given the variation in screen size and user-controlled font sizes I can not guarantee perfect page layouts. This bothers me, but I had to make my peace with this issue.
