|First canoe off the forms.|
With all but one rib in place, it was high time to take this boat off of the forms. This makes it a bit easier to get in and lash, but mostly it is fun to really appreciate how light this boat will be.
|Sassafras 16 with gunwales in place.|
|I like to say this is when we put ALL of our clamps on display.|
With the gunwales in place, we will be ready to turn this over an really go to work on the hull - filling the lap-stitch joint, cleaning up the ends and sanding everything, in preparation for the glassing of the hull.
