Dang, we were so busy installing the gunwales most of the day that I forgot to take any pictures of the process. Have to build another boat for that I guess. Here’s the finale, after cutting them to fit, clamping them on, drilling, back-drilling, bolting, grinding to fair, routing, lots of other repetitive processes, and sanding on down to baby-bottom smooth. Then we got to oil them.

Although it was only five o’clock, we quit. Why press our luck any further?

And tried the boat on for size.

Even my big ol’ long legs can stretch out in the rear cross hatch.

Bruce and Bob communing.

This is my very favorite part.
