Boats in the sunshine
April 3, 2011 § 3 Comments
The first nice day of the spring allowed me to get the boats out of the garage so that I could do a serious cleanup ahead of the last stages of the build.
It was also the first time that I could see the canoe from a distance and walk around it without tripping over the tools that I’d stupidly left on the floor. I have to admit that I love the shape. And though I’ve had some misgivings about using some of the funkier strips of cedar on the very visible sides of the boat, I’ve grown to like the look. That said, the next canoe will be more uniform.
So here’s a picture of the canoe and its little cousin basking in the sunlight.
