On Wednesday a strong crew of volunteer boatbuilders added ten more strips to the canoe. We now have 30 on each side, and the “football” in the center is getting smaller and smaller. We also began planing and sanding the hull, knocking off the high spots. Next steps: complete the smoothing of the cedar exterior and fit the outside ash stems on bow and stern. We will be working next Sunday and next Wednesday, 12:00-4:00. All volunteers welcome.
