Prepping for hibernation?

Well, it has been awhile since any meaningful progress has been made on the boat, except that she's been moved into storage in my barn, tops and bottom fitted onto the form and all wrapped in plastic. I took some time off and Rick and I headed to Italy for 2 weeks, which was wonderful! This winter I will be able to work on the rowing deck form and carbon fiber casting in our workshop as it is only about 9ft long, but I don't expect to get started on that until the new year. I'll also have time to order in all the hardware that I require....including the rigging with quick-release that I'm lusting after from Australia. A rest is good.

  1. Nice boat, I'm looking forward to further updates once it gets glassed! I am finishing off my first cedar strip kayak and thinking about building a scull for my sister, who does a bit of rowing. I'm not sure my garage will be able to house a 26' craft though.
