More Progress On the SoF Sailing Canoe

Over the weekend I managed to get all of the longitudinal stringers on the canoe frame. Yesterday, I took a day off of work to do some more work on it, it's been a stressful few months at home with the passing of my mother-in-law a few weeks ago and the progress of her dementia leading up to it. I was feeling a little burned out and experiencing creative block. In advertising and design, that can be a pretty big hinderance on productivity.

Stringers 5-6 going on.

I managed to lash up the stems yesterday and get the gunwales mostly done before running out of time and artificial sinew. It's starting to look pretty boat shaped, now.

Gunwales going on.
