The first 5 rows of strips on this boat are flat-sawn, giving a flame stripe. Cloth and the first coat of epoxy is on, next the fill coats.
I've been asked to make two Wee Lassie canoes, one of which will be a Wee Lassie II. The strips have all been cut, and today I set up the strongback and forms for the smaller Wee Lassie. I think I'll overlap the builds, to cut down on waiting times. Dust control will be an issue though, so will take a bit of planning.
