Cedar Strip Kayak Building: A Diamond in the Rough

After less than a month I have the hull entirely stripped.  Now the temporary strip stapled along the sheer will be removed and replaced with a permanent strip glued to the rest of the hull. I'll use a scraper to round down the high spots between strips and then sand the hull down prior to applying fiberglass and epoxy.

The picture below shows insertion of the last strip in the hull.

Weather at Dash Point today: Mostly cloudy with showers. Wind from the SW at 8 knots. Wind waves 1 ft or less.  Water was cold.  Tried norsamik masikkut but still couldn't figure out how I did it last time.
