Back to the Kayaks

monogrammed

An update on the kayaks, my frame is completely coated in varnish and Brian's is skinned to a point. The skin has been stapled in place and the running stitches sewn in the ends, but the whip stitching will have to wait till Monday or Tuesday.

measured and cut out our fabric and started skinning last night

fully stapled

Brian is going with a darker, slightly brown tint and I'm going with whatever the varnish ends up giving me. Probably something akin to an opaque off-white or butter yellow.

color choices, mine on the left, brian's on the right

Brian also finished up his seat back.
