The Building Process

Yes, I should be much further along at this point, but I'm not.

Here is a photo of the board stitched together. I was actually at this point about a month ago, but decided to make some changes to the shape just before gluing. I discussed with Matt the changes and he felt that they would enhance the performance, both as a kayak and as a windsurfer, so we made the changes.

In the next step I will add a support form and the forward bulkhead and then glue the joints to keep the shape. Then next step will be to build the centerboard and fin trunk and install.
I just wish I had more energy at the end of the day to spend in the shop. It cant be old age setting in. NO WAY!
