Re: Big Birthdays

Thanks guys !
Spring has sprung...limited boat build time soon.
Stay safe everyone. I can't wait to get back at work and in my cube. I hate working from home.

My wife helps out on the boat build and she loves slow cruising. Double bonus ! The chemical head for her to use - that will take a while 😳😁 but will let her chose the cushion colours👍🏻

Re: OB17

Hi Luluboat, Having built a cedar strip canoe in my younger years; sheathed inside and out with 6oz cloth and epoxy, a stitch & glue boat build is a totally different animal than the way a strip kayak / canoe is assembled. It is not difficult - only specific materials and sequences to follow, especi...
