We are well underway with this year's crop of boats. In the works are nine skin-on-frame, low seat canoes, one 'runabout' hydroplane and one West Greenland kayak. Gunwales, keelsons, stems and knees and breasthooks are all connected, and stringers are laid on the forms, Some students have started steaming and lashing in ribs.
