I took the day off punting yesterday to get AzRA’s dory Wesley ready to go on the river with us this week. But today it was back to the punt. Zeke and I spent the day cutting strange angles and scratching our graying heads, ending with the finished framing for the ever-so-slightly arched decks. The framing has added quite a bit of stiffness to the boat, so she doesn’t wrack nearly as badly as yesterday.
Tomorrow I help pack out the river trip, and Thursday we head to the Ferry for a sixteen-day float, so there won’t be much happening with the punt until I get back around Hallowe’en.
Next up: decking, seats, oarlocks, and trim. Maybe three more days of work?
