Detlef Dücker bought plans for Harrier a while back. This winter I got this e-mail from him:
After 3 years of part-time construction, the Harrier is in the water-finally ! I am very pleased about your beautiful design and performance. My boatshop has not got any heating, therefore I could not work there during the cold seasons. It took some time for building, but that was a good thing, to take your time and figure out the lay-out and the next steps to be made.
I wrote a 6-page long article about my Harrier, it will be published in the March/April 2018 issue of the British WATERCRAFT magazine.
The new boat will be christened “Falcone de Palú”(Marsh Harrier = Rohrweihe) and will be sailed and rowed at Klopeinersee in Austria, but also at the Laguna di Venezia and Laguna di Grado.
I could send you more photographs to publish on your website or forum ?
He has sent me a series of photos. Let me share them with you here:

I want to thank Detlef again for sharing these with us.
