I know many of you have been waiting with bated breath for an updated on my skin-on-frame outrigger canoe project. OK, by “many” I mean “three, max” and by “bated breath” I mean “vague curiosity.” But this boat is starting to take shape and, by the powers granted me by the good people behind WordPress and the blogosphere in general, I declare an update is overdue. It so happens that I hit a nice milestone last night, so here we are (complete with background views of our playroom).
I have assembled the keel, the three frames, the deck, the iako connection pieces (partially), and (partially) the bow piece.
Just the “transom” piece to go, along with the stringers.
My lashing is improving. I love it – this medium is REALLY working for me.
