Winter months

Things progress more slowly in the winter. Last weekend, we had a warm spell that lasted long enough for me to put the rub rails on the kayak (with the help of my dear wife, Janet). Looking for the next spell so that I can glue in the hip braces and attach the seat back. If I'm REAL lucky, it'll last long enough for me to paint the hull.

You'll recall from the last post I was looking for someone with a bandsaw. Turns out my brother-in-law, Richard, has one. I was able to roughly shape the blades of the paddle and save myself a LOT of hand planing and cutting.

Still anticipating a spring launch.
