Tippik time

5-7m meter seas. Seemed like a great day to stay home and occasionally pick at the kayak. 

Securing deck beams was something I had forgot to do last time. Can only make her stronger.

Black spruce which had been soaking for a week bent really well. However many pieces had small knots and of course broke off. Will get some new rib stock tomorrow.

Last build I added the ribs first before adding the keel. I ended up with a mess of fairing blocks to cut.

Pushing them up on the inside of the gunwales and clamping them in lace worked really well.

Everything is beginning to line up!
