The Furniture

Now that the hull is watertight I have started to set up the furniture. In the photos you can see that the bulkheads are secured in place with a tidy little inspection hatch too. Also you can see the clamps keeping the gunwhale in place while the epoxy sets it in place.

Next to come will be the inwhales, then the decks, then the seats, THEN THE THAMES! lol

Building out of stone would have been a hardship

So far the panels have sat on the floor and failed to resemble anything close to a canoe. Until today, when they where stitched together with copper wire. I now have a complete hull, making the process rather more satisfying.

Plain Sailing

The five panels that make up the hull have been cut and are almost all covered in a precoat of epoxy. Once the precoat is finished I can start stitching together the hull (maybe tomorrow). I'm excite.
