April 23rd. Making good progress...

Some boats are getting skinned, some frames still being varnished today.  The sea kayak has both its decks, but will now have a lot of 'detail' work to be done.  The Oxford Shell is almost ready for its decks.

Loosely applied skin in the back; tightened skin in foreground.

Row of staples holding the skin on the gunwale

Foredeck wrestled into place.

...and glued and nail on.
