This Week's Kayak Update

We sliced up the floorboards last night from the leftover 16' 2x12 stock we had. We also cut out our rubrails for later, picking the best four slices to be seen on the outside of the boats.

We then lashed in the floorboard supports and cut out blanks for our greenland style paddles. If they prove too wet paddling, we'll just make standard kayak paddles later or maybe add a turks head ring to the base of the blades to help shed any drips.

Also, not pictured, I managed to lash in one floorboard before calling it a night.
